With Hearts In Love Abounding


With hearts in love abounding,
Prepare we now to sing
A lofty theme, resounding
Thy praise, almighty King;
Whose love, rich gifts bestowing,
Redeemed the human race;
Whose lips with zeal o’erflowing,
Breathe words of truth and grace.

So reign, O God in heaven,
Eternally the same;
And endless praise be given
To Thy almighty name.
Cloth’d in Thy dazzling brightness,
Thy church on earth behold,
In robes of purest whiteness,
In raiment wrought with gold.

And let each Gentile nation
Come gladly in her train,
To share Thy great salvation,
And join her grateful strain:
Then ne’er shall note of sadness
Awake the trembling string;
One song of joy and gladness
The ransomed world shall sing.
