1 Angel-voices ever singing
round your throne of light,
angels' music ever ringing
rests not day nor night;
thousands only live to bless you
and confess you Lord of might.
2 Lord beyond our mortal sight,
in glory far away,
can it be that you delight
in sinners' songs today;
may we know that you are near us,
and will hear us? Yes, we may!
3 Yes, we know your heart rejoices
in each work divine,
using minds and hands and voices
in your great design;
craftsman's art and music's measure
for your pleasure all combine.
4 Here to you, great God, we offer
praise in harmony,
and for your acceptance proffer
hearts and minds and hands and voices
in our choicest psalmody.
5 Honour, glory, might and merit,
for your works and ways,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
God through endless days:
with the best that you have given
earth and heaven render praise.
