Up to Thee, Almighty Father,
Ancient of eternal days;
Throned in uncreated glory,
Hear us while our songs we raise.
Praise for Thy unceasing bounty,
Poured with an indulgent hand,
Praise for blessings still increasing,
Crowning freedom's favored land.
While a nation’s heart is leaping,
Mighty in its gushing joy,
May the song of adoration
All its grateful pow’rs employ.
Thine, O Lord, shall be the Kingdom,
Thine the pow’r and glory be;
Thine through endless ages rolling,
Thine throughout eternity.
Old air of “Go, Forget Me.”
