1 Sing to the Lord, our might,
With holy fervor sing;
Let hearts and instruments unite
To praise our heavenly king.

2 This is His sacred house;
And this His festal day;
When He accepts the humblest vows
That we sincerely pay.

3 The Sabbath to our sires
In mercy first was given;
The Church her Sabbath still requires
To speed her on to Heaven.

4 And we, like them of old,
Are in the wilderness;
And God is now as near His fold
To pity and to bless.

5 Then let us open wide
Our hearts for Him to fill;
And He that Israel then supplied
Will keep His Israel still.
