1 Sing to the Lord, who loud proclaims
His various, and his saving NAMES;
O may they not be heard alone,
But by our sure experience known!
2 Let great JEHOVAH be ador'd,
Th' eternal, all-sufficient LORD;
He thro' the world most high confess'd,
By whom 'twas form'd and is possess'd.
3 Awake, our noblest powers, to bless
The GOD of Abr'ham, GOD of PEACE;
Now by a dearer title known,
Father and GOD of Christ his Son.
4 Thro' ev'ry age his gracious ear
Is open to his servants' prayer;
Nor can one humble soul complain,
That it hath sought its GOD in vain.
5 What unbelieving heart shall dare,
In whispers to suggest a fear?
While still he owns his ancient name,
The same his power, his love the same.
6 To thee our souls in faith arise,
To thee we lift expectin eyes;
And boldly thro' the desert tread,
For GOD will guard, where GOD shall lead.
