Words by Francis Pott

Text

Angel voices, ever singing,
   round thy throne of light,
angel harps, for ever ringing,
   rest not day or night;
Thousands only live to bless Thee,
   and confess Thee
      Lord of might.

Thou who art beyond the farthest
   mortal eye can scan,
can it be that thou regardest
   songs of sinful man?
Can we know that thou art near us
   and wilt hear us?
      Yea, we can.

Yea, we know that thou rejoicest
   o'er each work of thine;
thou didst ears and hands and voices
   for thy praise design;
craftsman's art and music's measure
   for thy pleasure
      all combine.

In thy house, great God, we offer
   of thine own to thee;
and for thine acceptance proffer,
   all unworthily,
hearts and minds and hands and voices,
   in our choicest
      psalmody.

Honour, glory, might and merit,
   thine shall ever be,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
   blessed Trinity!
Of the best that thou hast given
   earth and heaven
      render thee.
