16 (S.M.) James Montgomery

Stand up and bless the Lord,

Ye people of His choice;

Stand up and bless the Lord your God,

With heart and soul and voice.

Though high above all praise,

Above all blessing high,

Who would not fear His holy name,

And laud and magnify?

Oh, for the living flame

From His own altar brought

To touch our lips, our minds inspire,

And wing to heav'n our thought!

There, with benign regard,

Our hymns He deigns to hear;

Though unrevealed to mortal sense,

The spirit feels Him near.

God is our strength and song,

And His salvation ours;

Then be His love in Christ proclaimed

With all our ransomed pow'rs.

Stand up and bless your Lord;

The Lord your God adore;

Stand up, and bless His glorious name,

Henceforth forevermore.
