    Verse 1
    Father, before Thy throne of light
    The guardian angels bend,
    And ever in Thy presence bright
    Their psalms adoring blend;
    And casting down each golden crown,
    Beside the crystal sea,
    With voice and lyre, in happy choir,
    Hymn glory, Lord, to Thee.

    Verse 2
    And as the rainbow lustre falls
    Athwart their glowing wings,
    While seraph unto seraph calls,
    And each Thy goodness sings;
    Oh may we feel, as low we kneel
    To pray Thee for Thy grace,
    That Thou art here for all who fear
    The brightness of Thy face.

    Verse 3
    Here, where the angels see us come
    To worship day by day,
    Teach us to seek our heavenly home,
    And serve Thee e'en as they;
    With them to raise our notes of praise,
    With them Thy love to own,
    Till life's first flower and fullest power
    Be Thine, and Thine alone.
