SONGS of praise the angels sang,

Heaven with hallelujahs rang,

When Jehovah’s work begun;

When He spake, and it was done.


Songs of praise awoke the morn,

When the Prince of Peace was born;

Songs of praise arose when He

Captive led captivity.


Heaven and earth must pass away;

Songs of praise shall crown that day;

God will make new heavens and earth;

Songs of praise shall hail their birth.


Saints below, with heart and voice,

Still in songs of praise rejoice;

Learning here, by faith and love,

Songs of praise to sing above.


Borne upon their latest breath,

Songs of praise shall conquer death:

Then, amidst eternal joy,

Songs of praise their powers employ.
