From All That Dwell below the Skies

Lyrics

  1. 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. 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. 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. 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.
  5. Text: Isaac Watts, 1674–1748
    Music: John Hatton, d. 1793
