Description

SATB Choir and Organ. A great setting in mixed meter, not that difficult, with a wonderful payoff. Richard Shephard's classic English style — you'll want to do this one again and again.

Come, ye people, Rise and sing
Praise to God, who made you,
And to heaven's eternal King
Bring the prayers He bade you;
Bring your praise for mercies past,
All His love confessing,
And on life, while life shall last,
ask your Father's blessing.

Praise we God the Father's name
For our world's creation,
And His saving health proclaim
Unto every nation;
Till, His name by all confessed,
Every heart enthrone Him,
And from farthest east and west
All His children own Him.

Praise we Son, and Holy Ghost,
Help us to adore Thee,
Till, with all the angel host,
Low we fall before Thee;
Till, throughout our early days
Guided, loved, forgiven,
We can blend our songs to praise
With the song of heaven!
