Songs We Like to Sing

Published 1912
Angel Voices

     Francis Pott                                         Arthur Sullivan

Angel voices ever singing
Round thy throne of light
Angel harps for ever ringing
Rest not day nor night.
Thousands only live to bless thee,
And confess thee,
Lord of might!

Thou, who art beyond the farthest
Mortal eye can scan,
Can it be that thou regardest
Songs of sinful man?
Can we feel that thou art near us,
Yea, we can.

Here, great God, today we offer
Of thine own to thee;
And for thine acceptance proffer,
All unworthily,
Hearts and minds and hands and voices
In our choicest melody.
