Listen to this song using Rhapsody (Free for 14 Days)

Begin my soul the exalted day


Begin, my soul, th'exalted lay;
let each enraptured thought obey,
and praise th'Almighty's Name:
let heaven and earth, and sea and skies,
in one melodious concert rise,
to swell th'inspiring theme.

Ye angels, catch the thrilling sound,
while all the adoring thrones around
his boundless mercy sing;
let every listening saint above
wake all the tuneful soul of love,
and touch the sweetest string.

Whate'er this living world contains,
that wings the air or treads the plains,
united praise bestow;
ye tenants of the ocean wide,
proclaim him through the mighty tide,
and in the deeps below.

Let man, by nobler passions swayed,
the feeling heart, the judging head,
in heavenly praise employ;
spread his tremendous Name around,
till heaven's broad arch rings back the sound
the general burst of joy.
