Original text and translations
Once more dear brethren join to sing
Jesus our Lord, our heavenly King;
His praise proclaim with sweet accord,
And worship him, for he’s your Lord.
Unite to shew his glory forth,
Sing of his excellence and worth;
His loving kindness here record,
And worship him, for he’s your Lord’.
O trust and triumph in his name,
Jesus unchangeably the same ;
His name shall endless joys afford,
Then worship him, for he’s your Lord
O make his praise in all.you do,
Your blessedness and business too!
This as your sweet employ regard,
To worship him, for he’s your Lord.
Before him walk in humble faith,
And in him trust in life and death;
Worthy is he to be ador’d,
Then worship him, for he’s your Lord.
Though from each other here we part,
With him we trust we’re join’d in heart;
He’s our exceeding great reward,
And him we’ll worship as our Lord.
'Ere long our happy souls shall meet,
In glory boundless and complete;
And there according to his word,
Forever worship him our Lord.
