Stand up, and bless the Lord
1 Stand up, and bless the Lord,
ye people of His choice;
stand up, and bless the Lord your God
with heart, and soul, and voice.
2 Though' high above all praise,
above all blessing high,
who would not fear His holy Name,
and laud and magnify?
3 O for the living flame,
from His own altar brought,
to touch our lips, our mind inspire,
and wing to heaven our thought!
4 God is our strength and song,
and His salvation ours;
then be His love in Christ proclaimed
with all our ransomed powers.
5 Stand up and bless the Lord,
the Lord your God adore;
stand up, and bless His glorious Name
henceforth for evermore.
