In tuneful accord, ye heirs of new birth,
Praise God who has brought us such grace from above,
And laud the Almighty in anthems of love.
O praise ye the Lord! Thanksgiving and song
To him be outpoured all ages along;
For love in creation, for heaven restored,
For grace of salvation, O praise ye the Lord. Amen.

Creating God, your fingers trace the bold designs of farthest space;
Let sun and moon and stars and light and what lies hidden praise your might.
Sustaining God, your hands uphold earth’s mysteries known or yet untold:
Let water’s fragile blend with air, enabling life, proclaim your care.
Redeeming God, your arms embrace all now despised for creed or race;
Let peace, descending like a dove, make known on earth your healing love.
Indwelling God, your gospel claims one family with a billion names;
Let every life be touched by grace until we praise you face to face.

    Not unto us, O Lord,
    The praise and glory be
    Of any deed or word.
    For in Thy judgment lies
    To crown or bring to nought
    All knowledge and device
    That man has reached or wrought.
    And we confess our blame,
    How all too high we hold
    That noise which men call fame,
    That dross which men call gold.
    For these we undergo
    Our hot and godless days,
    But in our souls we know
    Not unto us the praise.
    O Power, by whom we live,
    Creator, Judge, and Friend,
    Upholdingly forgive,
    Nor leave us at the end.
    But grant us yet to see
    In all our piteous ways,
    Non nobis, Domine,
    Not unto us the praise.
    Text by Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)
