1 Angel voices, ever singing   2 Thou who art beyond the farthest
    Round Thy throne of light —       Mortal eye can scan,
  Angel harps, for ever ringing,      Can it be that thou regardest
    Rest not day nor night;          Songs of sinful man?
  Thousands only live to bless Thee,      Can we know that Thou wilt hear us
      And confess Thee,          And art near us?
      Lord of might!         Yea, we can.
3 Yea, we know Thy love rejoices   4 Here, Great God, to-day we offer
    O'er each work of thine;       Of Thine own to Thee,
  Thou didst ears and hands and voices     And for Thine acceptance proffer,
    For Thy praise design.       All unworthily,
  Craftsman's art and music's measure     Hearts, and minds, and hands, and

      All combine.         In our choicest

5 Honour, glory, might and merit,
    Thine for ever be,
  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
    Blessèd Trinity!
  Of the best that Thou hast given,
      Earth and heaven
      Render Thee! Amen.
        Francis Pott, 1832 - 1909.
