Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above;
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of God’s unchanging love!

Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God:
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed his precious blood.
O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let that grace now, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to thee.

In tuneful accord, ye heirs of new birth,
Praise God who has brought us such grace from above,
And laud the Almighty in anthems of love.
O praise ye the Lord! Thanksgiving and song
To him be outpoured all ages along;
For love in creation, for heaven restored,
For grace of salvation, O praise ye the Lord. Amen.

Sustaining God, your hands uphold earth’s mysteries known or yet untold:
Let water’s fragile blend with air, enabling life, proclaim your care.
Redeeming God, your arms embrace all now despised for creed or race;
Let peace, descending like a dove, make known on earth your healing love.
Indwelling God, your gospel claims one family with a billion names;
Let every life be touched by grace until we praise you face to face.
