Hymn/Song Information

House of our God with cheerful anthems




House of our God,
with hymns of gladness ring,
While all our lips and hearts
His praises sing;
The opening year
His mercies shall proclaim,
And all its days
shall celebrate His Name.


Ye angel choirs on high,
whose dwelling place
Shines with the glory
of His unveiled face,
Through your immortal life,
as love still grows,
Tell of His goodness,
which no ending knows.


O Earth, enlightened
by His rays divine,
Stored by His hand
with corn and oil and wine,
Crowned with His goodness,
let thy nations raise
From shore to shore
the song of ceaseless praise.


O Church, His chosen
dwelling and delight,
Graven on His hands,
and precious in His sight,
Sing the deep marvels
of that boundless grace
Which sheds on thee
the brightness of His face.


Burst into praise,
my soul; and evermore
Through changing life
thy changeless God adore:
He is thy Trust,
thy Refuge, and thy Fear;
Strong in His strength,
begin the new-born year.
