Praise the Lord through every nation

Praise the Lord through every nation;
his holy arm hath wrought salvation;
exalt him on his Father's throne.
Praise your King, ye Christian legions,
who now prepares in heavenly regions
unfailing mansions for his own:
with voice and minstrelsy
extol his majesty:
His praise shall sound all nature round
and hymns on every tongue abound.

Jesus, Lord, our Captain glorious,
o'er sin, and death, and hell victorious,
wisdom and might to thee belong:
we confess, proclaim, adore thee;
we bow the knee, we fall before thee;
thy love henceforth shall be our song.
The cross meanwhile we bear,
the crown ere-long to wear:
Thy reign extend world without end;
let praise from all to thee ascend.

Adapted from which was the original tranlation by James Montgomery on Jan­u­ary 10, 1828, and pub­lished in his Orig­in­al Hymns, 1853.
