Poem by Mather Byles
Let angels above, and saints here below,
Unite in the praise of Jesus our King;
Let all the creation with gratitude glow,
And tuneful hosannas eternally sing.

 

Hymn by Charles Wesley
Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim,
And publish abroad His wonderful name.
The name all-victorious of Jesus extol,
His kingdom is glorious, and rules over all.

God ruleth on high, almighty to save,
And still He is nigh, His presence we have.
The great congregation His triumph shall sing,
Ascribing salvation to Jesus our King.

Salvation to God, who sits on the throne;
Let all cry aloud, and honor the Son;
Our Jesus' praises [will] the angels proclaim,
Fall down on their faces and worship the Lamb.

Then let us adore, and give Him His right,
All glory and power, with wisdom and might.
And honor and blessing, with angels above,
And thanks never-ceasing, and infinite love.
