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.
