1. Hail! Sacred Music hail! We offer at thy shrine
One perfect round complete in sound, celestial and divine.

2. 'Tis by Thy Heav'nly aid in one majestic sound,
We celebrate Jehovah's state, in one eternal round.

3. Great is the Lord our God, His mercy knows no bound;
Just are his ways, then let His praise Eternally go round.
