STAND up, and bless the Lord,

Ye people of His choice;

Stand up and bless the Lord your God,

With heart, and soul, and voice.


Though high above all praise,

Above all blessing high,

Who would not fear His holy name,

And laud, and magnify?


Oh for the living flame,

From His own altar brought,

To touch our lips, our souls inspire,

And wing to heaven our thought!


God is our strength and song,

And His salvation ours;

Then be His love in Christ proclaimed.

With all our ransomed powers.


Stand up, and bless the Lord;

The Lord your God adore;

Stand up, and bless His glorious name,

Henceforth forevermore.
