Watts Eleventaried

From all dwelling below the skies
Let the Creator's praise arise.

Let the Redeemer's name be sung
Through lands, by every tongue.

Adore and tremble, for our God
He is a consuming fire.

Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Does its successive journeys run.

To Jesus endless prayer be made,
Endless praises crown His head.

His name like sweet perfume shall rise
With every morning sacrifice.

Blessings abound where'er He reigns;
Prisoners leap and loose their chains.

Weary find eternal rest,
And all who suffer want are blest.

And infant voices shall proclaim
Their early blessings on His name.

Let every creature rise and bring
Honors peculiar to our King.

Angels descend with songs again,
And earth repeat the loud amen!
