498. Angel voices ever singing

1 Angel voices ever singing
round your throne of light,
angel harps for ever ringing,
rest not day nor night;
thousands only live to bless you
and confess you
Lord of might.

2 Lord we know your heart rejoices
in each work of thine;
you did ears and hands and voices
for your praise design;
craftsman's art and music's measure
for your pleasure
all combine.

3 In your house our gifts we offer
from your love so free;
and for your acceptance proffer
all unworthily,
hearts and minds and hands and voices
in our choicest
psalmody.

4 Honour, glory, might, and merit
yours shall ever be,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
blessèd Trinity.
Earth and heaven join in praising,
voices raising
joyfully.
