O Worship the King

Another of my favorites; I am on a roll here;

Verse 1:
O worship the King, all glorious above,
And gratefully sing His wonderful love;
Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of days,
Pavilion’d in splendor, and girded with praise.

Verse 2:
O tell of His might, and sing of His grace,
Whose robe is the light, Whose canopy space;
His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,
And dark is His path on the wings of the storm.

Verse 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.

Verse 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.

Robert Grant/F.J. Haydn
