Hymns of My Youth: Ye Servants of God


This is one of the many great hymns of Charles Wesley.

32 Ye Servants of God, Your Master Proclaim

image

Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim,
And publish abroad His wonderful Name;
The Name all victorious of Jesus extol,
His kingdom is glorious and rules over all.

God ruleth on high, almighty to save,
And still He is nigh, His presence we have;
The great congregation His triumph shall sing,
Ascribing salvation to Jesus our King.

Salvation to God, who sits on the throne,
Let all cry aloud and honor the Son;
The praises of Jesus the angels proclaim,
Fall down on their faces and worship the Lamb.

Then let us adore and give Him His right,
All glory, and pow’r, all wisdom and might;
All honor and blessing with angels above,
And thanks never ceasing, and infinite love.

The Concordia Hymnal (Augsburg Publishing House), 1960.

The Concordia tune is Lyons, composed by Johann Michael Haydn, the younger brother of Joseph Haydn. You might also recognize it as O Worship the King. It is also commonly sung to Hanover. The tunes are quite similar.

Lyons (organ)

Hanover (men’s chorus)
