Eternal source of every joy Well may Thy




Eternal Source of Every Joy
Well may Thy praise our lips employ,
While in Thy temple we appear
To hail Thee Sov'reign of the year.


Wide as the wheels of nature roll
Thy hand supports and guides the whole;
The sun is taught by thee to rise,
And darkness when to veil the skies.


The flow'ry spring at thy command
Perfumes the air and paints the land;
The summer rays with vigor shine
To raise the corn and cheer the vine.


Thy hand, in autumn, richly pours
Through all our coasts redundant stores;
And winters, softened by thy care
No more the face of horror wear.


Seasons and months, and weeks and days,
Demand successive songs of praise;
And be the grateful homage paid,
With morning light and ev'ning shade.


Here in thy house let incense rise,
And sweet devotion bless our eyes
Till to those lofty heights we soar,
Where days and years revolve no more.


O may our more harmonious tongue
In worlds unknown pursue the song;
And in those brighter courts adore
Where days and years revolve no more


---Alternative verses---


Eternal source of every joy,
Well may Thy praise our lips employ,
While in Thy temple we appear,
Whose goodness crowns the circling year.


The flow'ry spring at thy command
Embalms the air and paints the land;
The summer rays with vigor shine
To raise the corn and cheer the vine.


Seasons and months, and weeks, and days,
Demand successive songs of praise;
Still be the cheerful homage paid,
With opening light and evening shade.


Here in Thy house shall incense rise,
And circling Sabbaths bless our eyes,
Still we will make Thy mercies known
Around Thy board, around our own.


Here in thy house let incense rise,
And days of gladness bless our eyes,
Till to those lofty heights we soar,
Where days and years revolve no more.
