Hymn/Song Information

You boundless realms of joy Exalt your




Ye boundless realms of joy,
Exalt your Maker's frame,
His praise your song employ
Above the starry frame;
Your voices raise,
Ye cherubim
And seraphim,
To sing his praise


Thou moon, that rul'st the night,
And sun, that guid'st the day;
Ye glitt'ring stars of light,
To him your homage pay;
His praise declare,
Ye heav'ns above
And clouds that move
In liquid air.


Let them adore the Lord,
And praise his holy name,
By whose almighty word
They all from nothing came;
And all shall last
From changes free;
His firm decree
Stands ever fast.


Let earth her tribute pay;
Praise him, ye dreadful whales,
And fish, that through the sea
Glide swift with glitt'ring scales.
Fire, hail, and snow,
And misty air,
And winds that, where
He bids them, blow.


By hills and mountains,
(all in grateful concert joined,)
By cedars stately tall,
And trees for fruit designed;
By every beast,
And creeping thing,
And fowl of wing,
His name be blest.


Let all of royal birth,
With those of humbler frame,
And judges of the earth,
His matchless praise proclaim.
In this design
Let youth with maids,
And hoary heads
With children join.


United zeal be shown
His wondrous fame to raise,
Whose glorious name alone
Deserves our endless praise.
Earth's utmost ends
His pow'r obey;
His glorious sway
The sky transcends.


His chosen saints to grace,
He sets them up on high,
And favors Israel's race
Who still to him are nigh.
O therefore raise
Your grateful voice,
And still rejoice
The Lord to praise.


---Alternative verses---


You boundless realms of joy,
Exalt your Maker's fame;
His praise your songs employ
Above the starry frame:
You cherubim, your voices raise;
And, seraphim, shout loud his praise.


Thou moon, that rul'st the night,
And sun, that guid'st the day,
You glitt'ring stars of light,
To him your homage pay:
You heavens above, his praise declare,
And clouds that move in liquid air.


Let them adore the Lord,
And praise his holy name,
By whose almighty word
They all from nothing came:
From changes free, you all shall last;
His firm decree stands over fast.


Let earth her tribute pay;
Praise him, you dreadful whales,
And fish that through the sea
Glide swift with glitt'ring scales;
And misty air, fire, hail, and snow,
And winds that where he bids them blow.


By hills and mountains, all
In grateful concert join'd;
By cedars stately, tall,
And trees for fruit design'd;
By creeping things, and ev'ry beast,
And fowl of wings, his name be blest.


Let all of royal birth,
With those of humbler name,
And judges of the earth,
His matchless praise proclaim:
Let youths with maids, in this design,
And hoary heads with children join.


United zeal be shown,
His wondrous fame to raise,
Whose glorious name alone
Deserves our endless praise:
His power obey, earth's utmost ends;
His glorious sway the sky transcends.


His chosen saints to grace,
He sets them up on high,
And favors Israel's race,
Who still to him are nigh:
Your grateful voice, O therefore raise,
And still rejoice the Lord to praise.
