461. Angel voices, ever singing

Angel Voices (Sullivan):

Arthur S. Sullivan, 1872

Angel Voices (Monk):

Edwin G. Monk, 1861

Francis Pott, 1861;


Angel voices, ever singing

Round thy throne of light:

Angel harps, for ever ringing,

Rest not day nor night;

Thousands only live to bless thee,

And confess thee Lord of might.

Yea, we know that thou rejoicest

O'er each work of thine;

Thou didst ears and hands and voices

For thy praise combine

Craftsman's art and music's measure

For thy pleasure didst design.


In thy house, great God, we offer

Of thine own to thee;

And for thine acceptance proffer,

All unworthily,

Hearts and minds, and hands and voices,

In our choicest melody.

Honor, glory, might, and merit,

Thine shall ever be!

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

Blessèd Trinity!

Of the best that thou hast given,

Earth and heaven render thee.
