Hymn/Song Information

O Thou to Whom in ancient time The lyre




O Thou, to Whom, in ancient time,
The lyre of Hebrew bards was strung,
Whom kings adored in song sublime,
And prophets praised with glowing tongue.


Not now in Zionís height alone
The favored worshiper may dwell,
Nor where, at sultry noon, Thy Son
Sat weary by the patriarchís well.


From every place below the skies,
The grateful song, the fervent prayer,
The incense of the heart, may rise
To heaven, and find acceptance there.


O Thou to Whom, in ancient time,
The holy prophet's harp was strung,
To Thee, at last, in every clime,
Shall temples rise, and praise be sung.

O Thou to Whom, in ancient time,
The lyre of prophet bards was strung,
To Thee at last in every clime,
Shall temples rise and praise be sung.
