65. 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 minds inspire,
And wing to heav'n our thought.

4 God is our strength and song,
And His salvation ours;
Then be His love in Christ proclaimed
With all our ransomed pow'rs.

5 Stand up and bless the Lord,
The Lord your God adore;
Stand up and bless His glorious name
Henceforth forevermore.
