(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
Stand up and bless the Lord,
Ye people of His choice;
Stand up and bless the Lord you God
With heart and soul and voice.
Though high above all praise,
Above all blessinng high,
Who ould not fear His holy name,
And laud and magnify.
O for the living flame,
From His own altar brought,
To touch our lips, our minds insprie,
And wing to heav’n our thought!
God is our strength and song,
And His salvation ours;
Then be His love in CHrist prolcaimed
With all our ransomed pow’rs.
Stand up and bless the Lord —
The Lord you God adore;
Stand up and bless His glorious name
