The Universal Song.
Praise to thee, thou great Creator!
Praise to thee from ev'ry tongue;
Join, my soul, with ev'ry creature,
Join the universal song.
Cho. -- Glory to the Father and the Son,
Glory to the Spirit! three in one!
Let us praise him, let us praise him, let us praise him to-day, And sing his loving kindness on our way.
2 Father! source of all compassion!
Pure, unbounded grace is thine;
Hail the Lord of our salvation!
Praise him for his love divine.
3 For ten thousand blessings given,
For the hope of future joy,
Sound his praise thro' earth and heaven,
Sound Jehovah's praise on high.
4 Praise to God, our great Creator!
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost;
Praise him, ev'ry living creature,
Earth and heav'n's united host.
J. W. Fawcett, 1767.
