 1.  Not unto us, O Lord of heaven,
     But unto Thee be glory given;
     In love and truth Thou dost fulfill
     The counsels of Thy sovereign will:
     Though nations fail Thy power to own,
     Yet Thou dost reign, and Thou alone.

 2.  The idol gods of heathen lands
     Are but the work of human hands;
     They cannot see, they cannot speak,
     Their ears are deaf, their hands are weak;
     Like them shall be all those who hold
     To gods of silver and of gold.

 3.  Let Israel trust in God alone,
     The Lord whose grace and power are known;
     To Him your full allegiance yield,
     And He will be your help and shield;
     All those who fear Him God will bless,
     His saints have proved his faithfulness.

 4.  All ye that fear Him and adore,
     The Lord increase you more and more;
     Both great and small who Him confess,
     You and your children He will bless;
     Yea, blest are ye of Him who made
     The heavens, and earth's foundations laid.

 5.  The heavens are God's since time began,
     But He has given the earth to man;
     The dead praise not the living God,
     But we will sound His praise abroad,
     Yea, we will ever bless His Name;
     Praise Ye the Lord, His praise proclaim!
