Hymn/Song Information

Sovereign of all the worlds on high Allow my




Sovereign of all the worlds on high,
Allow my humble claim;
Nor, while a worm would raise its head,
Disdain a Father's name.


My Father, God! how sweet the sound!
How tender and how dear!
Not all the harmony of heaven
Could so delight the ear.


Come sacred Spirit, seal thy name
On my expanding heart,
And show that in Jehovah's grace,
I share a filial part.


Cheered by a signal so divine,
Unwav'ring I believe,
And, Abba, Father, humbly cry,
Nor can the sign deceive.


---Alternative verses---


My Father, God! how sweet the sound!
How tender and how dear!
Not all the melody of heaven
Could so delight the ear.


Cheered by a signal so divine,
Unwav'ring I believe,
Thou know'st I "Abba, Father," cry;
Nor can the sign deceive.
