Hymn/Song Information

Not all the nobles of the earth Who




Not all the nobles of the earth,
Who boast the honors of their birth,
Such real dignity can claim.
As those who bear the Christian name.


To them the privilege is giv'n
To be the sons and heirs of heav'n;
Sons of the God who reigns on high,
And heirs of joys beyond the sky.


His will he makes them early know,
And teaches their young feet to go;
Whispers instruction to their minds.
And on their hearts his precepts binds.


When, through temptation, they rebel,
His chast'ning rod he makes them feel;
Then, with a Father's tender heart.
He sooths the pain, and heals the smart.


Their daily wants his hands supply,
Their steps he guards with watchful eye,
Leads them from earth to heav'n above,
And crowns them with eternal love.
