Hymn/Song Information

Far as thy name is known The world declares thy




Far as thy name is known,
The world declares thy praise;
Thy saints, O Lord, before thy throne,
Their songs of honor raise.


With joy let Judah stand
On Zion's chosen hill,
Proclaim the wonders of thy hand,
And counsels of thy will.


Let strangers walk around
The city where we dwell,
Compass and view thine holy ground,
And mark the building well;


The orders of thy house,
The worship of thy court,
The cheerful songs, the solemn vows,
And make a fair report.


How decent and how wise!
How glorious to behold!
Beyond the pomp that charms the eyes,
And rites adorned with gold.


The God we worship now
Will guide us till we die,
Will be our God while here below,
And ours above the sky.


---Alternative verses---


With joy thy people stand,
On Zion's chosen hill,
Proclaim the wonders of thy hand,
And counsels of thy will.


Great is the Lord our God,
And let his praise be great:
He makes the churches his abode,
His most. delightful seat.


Oft have our fathers told,
Our eyes have often seen,
How well our God secures the fold
Where his own flock has been.


Let strangers walk around
The city where we dwell,
Compass and view the holy ground,
And mark the building well;
