Rejoice in God, O ye tongues; give the glory to the Lord,
and the Lamb. Nations, and languages, and every creature, in which
is the breath of Life.
Let man and beast appear before him, and magnify his name together.
Let Noah and his company approach the throne of Grace, and
do homage to the Ark of their Salvation.
Let Abraham bring a Ram, and worship the God of his
Let Jacob with his speckled Drove adore the good Shepherd
Let Daniel come forth with a Lion, and praise God with all
his might, through faith in Christ Jesus.
Let David bless with the bear:
the beginning of victory to the Lord--
to the Lord the perfection of excellence--
Hallelujah from the heart of God, and from the hand of
the artist inimitable, and from the echo of the
heavenly harp in sweetness magnifical and mighty.
