You Saints Of Light That Shine So Bright

You saints of light that shine so bright,
Above the lofty skies,
Come sing aloud since you’re endowed
With holy exercise.

My soul doth long to sing a song
Unto my lord above;
And there unite in sweet delight,
With all the saints in love;

And spend away eternal day,
In lofty songs of praise,
And thus engage throughout the age
Of everlasting days.

When I get grace and strength of faith,
To strike these heavenly notes,
I’ll praise him too as angels do,
With their sweet warbling throats.
