And every tongue confess;
Let the Redeem'd with joy proclaim
"The Lord our Righteousness."

To Him through all the rounds of time
Perpetual prayer be made;
O'er sea and land, from clime to clime,
Homage to Him be paid.

From young and old with every breath
Let prayer and praise arise;
Life be the "daily offering"--Death
"The evening sacrifice."

Let heaven and earth reply "Amen!"
And all their hosts adore,
The Lord of Angels and of men
For ever evermore.
