Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
Ye holy souls, in God rejoice,|
Your Maker's praise becomes your voice;
Great is your theme, your songs be new:
Sing of his name, his word, his ways,
His works of nature and of grace,
How wise and holy, just and true!
2. Justice and truth he ever loves,
3. He gathers the wide-flowing seas|
Those wat'ry treasures know their place
In the vast storehouse of the deep:
He spake, and gave all nature birth;
And fires, and seas, and heav'n, and earth,
His everlasting orders keep.
4. Let mortals tremble and adore
