O Worship the King, All Glorious Above

1. O worship the King,
All glorious above,
O gratefully sing,
His power and His love,
Our shield and defender,
The Ancient of Days,
Pavilioned in splendour,
And girded with praise.

2. O tell of His might,
O sing of His grace,
Whose robe is the light,
cr Whose canopy space,
His chariots of wrath the
Deep thunder-clouds form,
And dark is His path,
On the wings of the storm.


3. mf The earth with its store
Of wonders untold,
Almighty, Your power,
Has founded of old
Established it fast by
A changeless decree,
And round it has cast
like a mantle the sea.


4. cr The bountiful care,
What tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air;
It shines in the light,
dim It streams from the hills it
Descends to the plain,
p And sweetly distils in
The dew and the rain.


5. mp Frail children of dust,
And feeble as frail,
cr In You do we trust,
God, who never fail,
Your mercies how tender,
How firm to the end,
f Our Maker, Defender,
Redeemer and Friend.


6. cr O measureless Might,
Ineffable Love,
While angels delight
To praise You above,
f Your humbler creation
Though feeble their lays
ff With true adoration
shall sing to Your praise. Amen

[Robert Grant]
