Hymn/Song Information

Now let our cheerful eyes survey Our great High




Now let our cheerful eyes survey
Our great High Priest above,
And celebrate His constant care,
And sympathetic love.


Though raised to a superior throne,
Where angels bow around,
And high o’er all the shining train,
With matchless honors crowned—


The names of all His saints He bears
Engraven on His heart;
Nor shall a name once treasured there
E’er from His care depart.


Those characters shall fair abide
Our everlasting trust,
When gems, and monuments, and crowns,
Are mouldered down to dust.


So, gracious Savior! on my breast,
May Thy dear Name be worn,
A sacred ornament and guard,
To endless ages borne.


---Alternative verses---


Now let our cheerful eyes survey
Our Great High Priest above,
And celebrate his constant care
And sympathizing love.


Though raised to heaven’s exalted throne,
Where angels bow around,
And high o’er all the hosts of light,
With matchless honours crowned.


The names of all his saints he bears,
Deep graven on his heart;
Nor shall the meanest Christian say
That he has lost his part.


So, gracious Savior, on our breasts
May thy dear name be worn,
A sacred ornament and guard,
To endless ages borne.
