Hymn/Song Information

Angel voices ever singing Round Thy




Angel voices ever singing
Round Thy throne of light,
Angel harps forever ringing,
Rest not day nor night;
Thousands only live to bless Thee,
And confess Thee
Lord of might.


Thou who art beyond the farthest
Mortal eye can scan,
Can it be that Thou regardest
Songs of sinful man?
Can we know that Thou art near us
And wilt hear us?
Yes, we can.


Yes, we know that Thou rejoicest
O’er each work of Thine;
Thou didst ears
and hands and voices
For Thy praise design;
Craftsman’s art
and music’s measure
For Thy pleasure
All combine.


In Thy house, great God, we offer
Of Thine own to Thee,
And for Thine acceptance proffer,
All unworthily,
Hearts and minds
and hands and voices
In our choicest
Psalmody.


Honour, glory, might, and merit
Thine shall ever be,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Blessèd Trinity.
Of the best that Thou hast given
Earth and heaven
Render Thee.


---Alternative verses---


Here, great God, today we offer
of Thine own to Thee;
And for Thine acceptance proffer,
all unworthily,
Hearts and minds,
and hands and voices,
in our choicest melody.
