Not unto Us, O Lord of Heaven

  1. Not unto us, O Lord of heav’n,
    but unto you be glory giv’n.
    In love and truth you do fulfill
    the counsels of your sov’reign will;
    though nations fail your pow’r to own,
    yet, Lord, you reign, and you alone.
  2. The idol-gods of heathen lands
    are but the work of human hands;
    they cannot see, they cannot speak,
    their ears are deaf, their hands are weak.
    Like them shall be all those who hold
    to gods of silver and of gold.
  3. Let Isr’el trust in God alone,
    the Lord whose grace and pow’r are known.
    To him your full allegiance yield,
    and he will be your help and shield.
    All those who fear him God will bless;
    his saints have proved his faithfulness.
  4. All you who fear him and adore,
    the Lord increase you more and more.
    Both great and small who him confess,
    you and your children he will bless.
    Yea, blest are you by him who made
    the heav’ns, and earth’s foundations laid.
  5. The heav’ns are God’s since time began,
    but he has giv’n the earth to man.
    The dead praise not the living God,
    but we will sound his praise abroad.
    Yea, we will ever bless his name;
    O praise the Lord, his praise proclaim.
