10713. Angels, Assist To Sing

1 Angels, assist to sing
The honors of your God;
Touch every tuneful string,
And sound His name abroad;
Come, pour the trembling notes along,
And swell the grand, immortal song.

2 And ye of meaner birth,
Your joyful voices raise;
All ye who dwell on earth,
Your great Creator praise;
Let loud hosannas joyful rise,
Roll round the earth and pierce the skies.

3 Let day and dusky night
In solemn order, join
His praises to recite,
And speak His power divine;
Let every hill, and every vale,
Re-echo with the sacred tale.

4 Ye winds and raging seas,
With wild tempestuous roar
Resound in mightier lays,
His name from shore to shore;
Ye thunders, spread His name abroad;
Ye lightnings, flash before your God.

5 Let every creature sing
The honors of our God;
Touch every tuneful string,
And spread His praise abroad;
Come, pour your trembling notes along,
And swell the universal song.
