Ye saints and servants of the Lord the triumphs of




Ye saints and servants of the Lord,
the triumphs of his Name record:
His sacred Name for ever bless.
Where'er the circling sun displays
his rising beams or setting rays,
Due praise to his great Name address.


God through the world extends his sway,
the regions of eternal day
But shadows of his glory are.
With him, whose majesty excels,
who made the heaven in which he dwells,
Let no created power compare.


Though 'tis beneath his state to view
in highest heav'n what angels do,
Yet he to earth vouchsafes his care:
He takes the needy from his cell,
advancing him in courts to dwell,
companion to the greatest there.


When childless families despair,
he sends the blessing of an heir,
To rescue their expiring name;
Makes her that barren was to bear,
and joyfully her fruit to rear:
O then extol his matchless fame!


---Alternative verses---


God through the world extends his sway,
the regions of eternal day
But shadows of his glory are.
To him, whose majesty excels,
who made the heaven in which he dwells,
Let no created power compare.
