We Magnify Your Name
We come, our Master and our God,
To magnify Your Name;
To spread its gracious worth abroad,
And to increase its fame.
We lift our voices to declare
Your worthy Name and ways,
Accept, we pray, our humble prayer
Of grateful, loving praise.
We’ve heard of all the works You’ve done
For generations past,
We know the triumphs of Your Son
And how He’ll come at last.
We’ve told of works on our behalf
Which You have wrought in love,
We look for mercies on the path
That leads our steps above.
We see the bright variety
Of all Your hand designed,
We marvel at the strength we see
Sustaining all we find.
We hear the waves that lift their voice,
The thunder claps its hands;
In awe and wonder we rejoice –
Each follows Your commands
We know the tender love You show,
You form and plan our days,
Your gentleness and strength we know
Which now inspire our praise.
We hope in You with confidence
Because we’ve seen the past,
And trust what You have promised us –
Your faithful mercies last.
