BLEST be our everlasting Lord,

By A Collection of Hymns

      C.M. 1 Chronicles xxix. 10 - 13.
      1 BLEST be our everlasting Lord,
      Our Father, God, and King!
      Thy sovereign goodness we record,
      Thy glorious power we sing.

      2 By thee the victory is given;
      The majesty divine,
      And strength, and might, and earth, and heaven,
      And all therein, are thine.

      3 The kingdom, Lord, is thine alone,
      Who dost thy right maintain,
      And, high on thine eternal throne,
      O'er men and angels reign.

      4 Riches, as seemeth good to thee,
      Thou dost, and honour, give;
      And kings their power and dignity
      Out of thy hand receive.

      5 Thou hast on us the grace bestowed
      Thy greatness to proclaim;
      And therefore now we thank our God,
      And praise thy glorious name.

      6 Thy glorious name and nature's powers
      Thou dost to us make known;
      And all the Deity is ours,
      Through thy incarnate Son.
