Let choral songs of gladness flow,
The Lord of hosts to praise;
Who deigned on darkened minds to throw,
The law’s enlight’ning rays.
No plea hath Israel for crime;
Since God’s paternal grace
To him revealed those truths sublime,
Which time can ne’er efface.
Before our eyes then let us set
Our Father’s bond of love;
With praise repay our filial debt,
To him who reigns above.
Let Sinai proudly lift her head,
Above the hills of earth;
For God thereon his glory shed
At revelation’s birth.
Exalt the Lord! to whom we owe
The first and latter rain,
And dews from mercy’s fount, that flow
To bless the thirsty plain.
As those refreshing showers tend
To fertilize the field;
Thy laws, God! our hearts amend,
And virtue’s harvest yield.
