The United Methodist Hymnal


From All That Dwell Below the Skies

1.	From all that dwell below the skies, 
	let the Creator's praise arise; 
	let the Redeemer's name be sung, 
	through every land by every tongue.

2.	Eternal are thy mercies, Lord; 
	eternal truth attends thy word.  
	Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore, 
	till suns shall rise and set no more.

3.	Your lofty themes, ye mortals, bring, 
	in songs of praise divinely sing; 
	the great salvation loud proclaim, 
	and shout for joy the Savior's name.

4.	In every land begin the song; 
	to every land the strains belong; 
	in cheerful sounds all voices raise, 
	and fill the world with loudest praise.
