The Book of Praise.
With offerings of devotion
Ships from the Isles shall meet,
To pour the wealth of ocean In tribute at His feet.
Kings shall fall down before Him.
And gold and incense bring ; All nations shall adore Him,
His praise all people sing ; For He shall have dominion
O'er river, sea, and shore ; Far as the eagle's pinion,
Or dove's light wing, can soar.
For Him shall prayer unceasing,
And daily vows ascend, His kingdom still increasing,
A kingdom without end : The mountain-dews shall nourish
A seed, in weakness sown, Whose fruit shall spread and flourish)
And shake like Lebanon.
O'er every foe victorious
He on His throne shall rest, From age to age more glorious,
All blessing and all-blest: The tide of time shall never
His covenant remove ; His Name shall stand for ever,
That Name to us is Love.
James Montgomery. 1822
