O Worship the King

~ Robert Grant, 1779-1838



Stanza 1:

O worship the King, all glorious above,

And gratefully sing His powr and His love;

Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days,

Pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.



Stanza 2:

O tell of His might, O sing of His grace,

Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space;

His chariots of wrath the deep thunder-clouds form,

And dark is His path on the wings of the storm.



Stanza 3:

Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite?

It breathes in the air, it shines in the light;

It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,

And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.



Stanza 4:

Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,

In Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail;

Thy mercies how tender! how firm to the end!

Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer and Friend.
