PSALM 47

C. M.

Christ ascending and reigning.

84

O for a shout of sacred joy

To God the sovereign King!

Let every land their tongues employ,

And hymns of triumph sing.

Jesus our God ascends on high,

His heav'nly guards around

Attend him rising through the sky,

With trumpets' joyful sound.

While angels shout and praise their King,

Let mortals learn their strains;

Let all the earth his honors sing;

O'er all the earth he reigns.

Rehearse his praise with awe profound,

Let knowledge lead the song,

Nor mock him with a solemn sound

Upon a thoughtless tongue.

In Isr'el stood his ancient throne,

He loved that chosen race;

But now he calls the world his own,

And heathens taste his grace.

The British islands are the Lord's,

There Abraham's God is known;

While powers and princes, shields and swords,

Submit before his throne.
