Not Unto Us But Thee Alone Blessed Lamb


Not unto us, but thee alone,
Blest Lamb, be glory given!
Here shall thy praises be begun,
And carried on in Heaven.

The host of spirits now with thee,
Eternal anthems sing:
To imitate them here, lo! we,
Our Hallelujahs bring.

Had we our tongues like them inspir’d,
Like theirs our songs shou’d rise;
Like them we never should be tir’d,
But love the sacrifice.

‘Till we the veil of flesh lay down,
Accept our weaker lays;
And when we reach thy father’s throne
We’ll give thee nobler praise.
