1 Come let us all unite to praise
The Savior of mankind,
Our thankful hearts in solemn lays,
Be with our voices joined.

2 But how shall dust his worth declare,
When angels try in vain;
Their faces veil when they appear
Before the Son of Man.

3 O Lord, we cannot silent be,--
By love we are constrained
To offer our best thanks to Thee,
Our Savior, and our friend!

4 Though feeble are our best essays,
Thy love will not despise
Our grateful songs of humble praise,
Our well-meant sacrifice.

5 Let every tongue thy goodness show,
And spread abroad thy fame:
Let every heart with praise o'erflow,
And bless thy sacred name!

6 Worship and honor, thanks and love,
Be to our Jesus given!
By men below,--by hosts above,--
By all in earth and heaven!
