Description

SATB and Organ. Thom's own hymn tune Vanlaningham provides the impetus for this rousing anthem. Great fun to sing!

Text: Psalm 96 - Isaac Watts

Sing to the Lord, ye distant lands,
in every tone and tongue;
God's all embracing grace demands
a new and nobler song.
Let heav'n proclaim a joyful day,
let joy be felt and seen;
let cities shine in bright array,
and fields wear cheerful green.

Let an unusual joy surprise
the islands of the sea;
let mountains sink,
let valleys rise, prepare his way.
Say to to the the nations, Jesus reigns,
God's almighty Son.
Yield to his rule; for Love sustains,
and grace surrounds the throne.

Behold he comes! Christ comes to bless,
to share the love of God;
he shows the world God's righteousness,
and sends the truth abroad.
Sing to the Lord, ye distant land,
in every tone and tongue;
God's all embracing grace demands
a new and nobler song.
