4230. My God, My King, Thy Praise I Sing

1. My God, my King, Thy praise I sing,
My heart is all Thine own;
My highest powers, my choicest hours,
I yield to Thee alone.

2. My voice awake, thy part to take;
My soul, the concert join;
Till all around shall catch the sound,
And mix their hymns with mine.

3. But man is weak Thy praise to speak;
Your God, ye angels, sing;
’Tis yours to see, more near than we,
The glories of our King.

4. His truth and grace fill time and space;
As large His honors be
Till all that live their homage give
And praise my God with me.
