A Little Bit of O Kingly Love

O kingly Love, that faithfully
didst keep thine ancient promises,
didst bid the bidden come to thee,
the people thou didst choose to bless,

This day we raise our song of praise,
adoring thee,
that in the days when alien sound had all but
drowned thine ancient, true and constant
melody,
Thy mighty hand did make a trumpet none
could silence or mistake;
thy living breath did blow for all the world to
hear, living and clear: *

(To be Continued)
(I love that line about the trumpet. Wherever “worship” is going these days, God won’t let his trumpet be silent.)

*Text: Martin H. Franzman, 1907-76
*Tune: Richard Hillert
