O Praise the Lord in that blest place from whence

O Praise the Lord in that blest place,
from whence his goodness largely flows;
Praise him in heaven, where his face
unveiled in perfect glory shows.

Praise him for all the mighty acts
which he in our behalf hath done;
His kindness this return exacts,
with which our praise should equal run.

Let the shrill trumpet's warlike voice
make rocks and hills his praise rebound;
Praise him with harp's melodious noise,
and gentle psalt'ry's silver sound.

Let virgin troops soft timbrels bring,
and some with graceful motion dance;
Let instruments of various strings,
with organs joined, his praise advance.

Let them, who joyful hymns compose,
to cymbals set their songs of praise,
Cymbals of common use, and those
that loudly sound on solemn days.

Let all that vital breath enjoy,
the breath he does to them afford
in just returns of praise employ:
let ev'ry creature praise the Lord.
