From All That Dwell below the Skies


From All That Dwell below the Skies


1. From all that dwell below the skies,

Let the Creator’s praise arise;

Let the Redeemer’s name be sung

Through ev’ry land, by ev’ry tongue.

2. In ev’ry land begin the song;

To ev’ry land the strains belong.

In cheerful sounds all voices raise

And fill the world with loudest praise.

3. Your lofty themes, ye mortals, bring;

In songs of praise divinely sing.

The great salvation loud proclaim,

And shout for joy the Savior’s name.

4. Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;

Eternal truth attends thy word.

Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,

Till suns shall rise and set no more.
