House of our God, with cheerful anthems ring,
While all our lips and hearts his graces sing;
The opening year his graces shall proclaim,
And all its days be vocal with his name.
The Lord is good, his mercy never-ending;
His blessings in perpetual show'rs descending.
Burst into praise, my soul all nature join!
Angels and men in harmony combine;
While human years are measured by the sun,
And while eternity its course shall run.
Hallelujah. Amen.
