Hymn/Song Information

THE GLORIES OF MY SAVIOUR SING




Now be my heart inspired to sing
The glories of my Saviour King,
Jesus the Lord; how heavenly fair
His form! how bright His beauties are!


Oer all the sons of human race
He shines with a superior grace;
Love from His lips divinely flows,
And blessings all His state compose.


Dress Thee in arms, most mighty Lord,
Gird on the terror of Thy sword,
In majesty and glory ride,
With truth and meekness at Thy side.


Thine anger, like a pointed dart,
Shall pierce the foes of stubborn heart;
Or words of mercy, kind and sweet,
Shall melt the rebels at Thy feet.


Thy throne, O God, for ever stands,
Grace is the sceptre in Thy hands;
Thy laws and works are just and right,
Justice and grace are Thy delight.


God, Thine own God, has richly shed
His oil of gladness on Thy head,
And with His sacred Spirit blest
His first-born Son above the rest.


Let endless honours crown thy head:
Let every age thy praises spread:
Let all the nations know thy word.
And every tongue confess thee Lord.


---Alternative verses---


Now be my heart inspired to sing
The glories of my Saviour King!
He comes with blessings from above,
And wins the nations to his love.


Thy throne, O God, for ever stands;
Grace is the sceptre in thy hands:
Thy laws and Works are just and right
But truth and mercy thy delight.
