We Adore Thee, Eternal Lord

We adore Thee, eternal Lord;
We praise Thy name with one accord;
Thy saints, who here Thy goodness see,
Through all the world do worship Thee.

To Thee aloud all angels cry,
The heavens and all the powers on high:
Thee, holy, holy, holy King,
Lord God of Hosts, they ever sing.

Th’ apostles join the glorious throng;
The prophets swell th’ immortal song;
The martyrs’ noble army raise
Eternal anthems to Thy praise.

From day to day, O Lord, do we
Highly exalt and honor Thee:
Thy name we worship and adore,
World without end, for evermore.

John Gambold

Copied from my grandmother’s hymnal, Hymn Book, Methodist Episcopal Church, South: Nashville, TN, 1901, Hymn #11.

I have sworn by Myself, the word is gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

Isaiah 45:23

For it is written, “As I live,” saith the Lord, “every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”

Romans 14:11

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:10-11

Note: The hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I make up a title or simply use the first line.
