Ye holy angels bright
Tune: St John  
Metre: 6666 4444  

 

Ye holy angels bright,

Who wait at Godís right hand,

Or through the realms of light

Fly at your Lordís command,

Assist our song,

Or else the theme

Too high doth seem

For mortal tongue.

 

Ye blessed souls at rest,

Who ran this earthly race,

And now, from sin released,

Behold the Saviourís face,

His praises sound,

As in his light

With sweet delight

Ye do abound.

 

Ye saints, who toil below,

Adore your heavenly King,

And, onward as ye go,

Some joyful anthem sing;

Take what he gives,

And praise him still

Through good and ill,

Who ever lives. 

 

My soul, bear thou thy part,

Triumph in God above,

And with a well-tuned heart

Sing thou the songs of love.

Let all thy days

Till life shall end,

Whateíer he send,

Be filled with praise.
