1 Stand up and bless the Lord
you people of his choice;
stand up and bless the Lord your God
with heart and soul and voice.
2 O for the living flame,
from God's own altar brought,
to touch our lips, our minds inspire,
and wing to heaven our thought!
3 God is our strength and song,
and his salvation ours;
then be his love in Christ proclaimed
with all our ransomed powers.
4 Stand up and bless the Lord,
the Lord your God adore;
stand up and bless his glorious name,
both now and evermore.
