    Verse 1
    Songs of praise the angels sang,
    Heaven with alleluyas rang,
    When creation was begun,
    When God spoke and it was done.

    Verse 2
    Songs of praise awoke the morn
    When the Prince of Peace was born;
    Songs of praise arose when He
    Captive led Captivity.

    Verse 3
    Heaven and earth must pass away,
    Songs of praise shall crown that day;
    God will make new heavens and earth,
    Songs of praise shall hail their birth.

    Verse 4
    And will man alone be dumb
    Till that glorious kingdom come?
    No, the Church delights to raise
    Psalms and hymns and songs of praise.

    Verse 5
    Saints below, with heart and voice,
    Still in songs of praise rejoice,
    Learning here by faith and love
    Songs of praise to sing above.

    Verse 6
    Borne upon their latest breath,
    Songs of praise shall conquer death;
    Then amidst eternal joy,
    Songs of praise their powers employ.
