STAND up and bless the Lord,

Ye people of his choice; 

Stand up and bless the Lord your God

With heart, and soul, and voice.

Though high above all praise,

Above all blessing high

Who would not fear his holy name,

And laud, and magnify?

Oh! for the living flame,

From his own altar brought,

To touch our lips-our minds inspire,

And raise to heaven our thought.

God is our strength and song,

And his salvation ours;

Then be his love in Christ proclaimed

With all our ransomed powers.

Stand up and bless the Lord,

The Lord your God adore;

Stand up and bless his glorious name

Henceforth forevermore.
