Heaven-ly Father, sove-reign Lord,

Be thy glorious name a -dored!

Lord thy mercies nev-er fail,

Hail, ce-les-tial goodness, hail!

Though unworthy, Lord, thine ear,

Deign our humble songs to hear;

Purer praise we hope to bring

When around thy throne we sing.

Then with angel harps again

We will wake a nobler strain;

There, in joyful songs of praise,

Our triumphant voices raise.
