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 weJohn Gambold
Highly exalt and honor Thee:
Thy name we worship and adore,
World without end, for evermore.
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.
