Now for a song of lofty praise To great Jehovah's




Now for a tune of lofty praise
To great Jehovah's equal Son!
Awake, my voice, in heavenly lays
Tell the loud wonders he hath done.


Sing how he left the worlds of light,
And the bright robes he wore above;
How swift and joyful was his flight,
On wings of everlasting love!


[Down to this base, this sinful earth,
He came to raise our nature high;
He came t' atone Almighty wrath;
Jesus, the God, was born to die.]


[Hell and its lions roared around,
His precious blood the monsters spilt;
While weighty sorrows pressed him down,
Large as the loads of all our guilt.]


Deep in the shades of gloomy death
Th' almighty Captive prisoner lay,
Th' almighty Captive left the earth,
And rose to everlasting day.


Lift up your eyes, ye sons of light,
Up to his throne of shining grace;
See what immortal glories sit
Round the sweet beauties of his face!


Amongst a thousand harps and songs,
Jesus, the God, exalted reigns;
His sacred name fills all their tongues,
And echoes through the heavenly plains.

Now for a song of lofty praise
To great Jehovah's only Son!
Awake, my voice, in heavenly lays
And tell loud wonders he hath done.


Sing how he left the worlds of light,
And those bright robes he wore above;
How swift and joyful was his flight,
On wings of everlasting love!


Among a thousand harps and songs,
Jesus, the Lord, exalted reigns;
His sacred name fills all their tongues,
And echoes through the heavenly plains.
