Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
O for a shout of sacred joy|
To God the sovereign King!
Let every land their tongues employ,
And hymns of triumph sing.
2. Jesus our God ascends on high,
3. While angels shout and praise their King,
4. Rehearse his praise with awe profound,|
Let knowledge lead the song,
Nor mock him with a solemn sound
Upon a thoughtless tongue.
5. In Isr'el stood his ancient throne,
6. The British islands are the Lord's,
