Praise for Creation and Redemption. Ps. 103. 22

J. Hart          C.M.

1
While heavenly hosts their anthems sing,
 In realms above the sky,
 Let worms of earth their tribute bring,
 And laud the Lord most high.

2
In thankful notes your voices raise,
 Ye ransomed of the Lord;
 And sing the eternal Father’s praise,
 The God by all adored.

3
All creatures to his bounty owe
 Their being and their breath;
 But greatest gratitude should flow
 In men redeemed from death.

4
His only Son he deigned to give;
 What love this gift declares!
 And all that in the Son believe,
 Eternal life is theirs.
