Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840

Hymn 83
1. Come, sound his praise abroad,
And hymns of glory sing;
Jehovah is the sovereign God,
The universal King.

2. He formed the deeps unknown,
He gave the seas their bound;
The watery worlds are all his own,
And all the solid ground.

3. Come, worship at his throne,
Come, bow before the Lord;
We are his work, and not our own;
He formed us by his word.

4. To-day attend his voice,
Nor dare provoke his rod;
Come, like the people of his choice,
And own your gracious God.

5. But if your ears refuse
The language of his grace,
And hearts grow hard, like stubborn Jews,
That unbelieving race.

6. The Lord, in vengeance drest,
Will lift his hand and swear,
You that despise my promised rest
Shall have no portion there.
