Hymns for the Watch-Night (#8)
Meet and Right It Is to Sing

Charles Wesley
(1707-1788)
John Wesley
(1703-1791)

Meet and right it is to sing
In every time and place,
“Glory to our heavenly King,
The God of truth and grace!”
Join we then with sweet accord,
All in one thanksgiving join:
“Holy, holy, holy, Lord,
Eternal praise be Thine!”

Thee the firstborn sons of light
In choral symphonies
Pray by day (day without night)
And never, never cease;
Angels and archangels, all
Sing the mystic Three in One!
Sing, and stop, and gaze, and fall,
O’erwhelmed before Thy throne!

Vying with the happy choir
Who chant Thy praise above,
We, on eagle’s wings aspire,
The wings of faith and love;
Thee they sing with glory crowned,
We extol the slaughtered Lamb,
Lower if our voices sound,
Our subject is the same.

Father, God, we love and praise,
Which gave the Son to die!
Jesus, full of truth and grace,
Alike we glorify;
Spirit, Comforter divine,
Praise by all to Thee be given,
’Til we in full chorus join,
And earth is turned to heaven.
