Come, sound his praise abroad,
And hymns of glory sing!
Jesus(*) is the sovereign Lord,
The universal King.

He formed the deeps unknown;
He gave the seas their bound;
The watery worlds are all his own,
And all the solid ground.

Come, worship at his throne;
Come, bow before the Lord:
We are his works, and not our own;
He formed us by his word.

To-day attend his voice,
Nor dare provoke his rod;
Come, as the people of his choice,
And own your gracious God. (*) originally Jehovah
