Thus Will I Sing (Fillmore) 434

Tune: John Palmer Rees, 1869
Lyrics: Ottiwell Heginbothom, 1794
Meter: Long Meter Double (8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8)
Great God, let all my tuneful pow'rs
Awake and sing Thy mighty name;
Thy hand revolves my circling hours,
Thy hand from whence my being came.
Thus I will sing 'till nature cease,
'Till sense and language are no more,
And after death Thy boundless grace
Thro' everlasting years adore.
