1 Not unto us, O LORD of heaven,
but unto you be glory given;
in love and truth you do fulfill
the counsels of your sovereign will.
Though nations fail your power to own,
you are the King you reign alone.
2 The idol gods of heathen lands
are but the work of human hands:
they cannot see, they cannot speak,
their ears are deaf, their hands are weak.
Like them shall be all those who hold
to gods of silver and of gold.
3 So let us trust in God alone,
the LORD, whose grace and power are known;
to him your full allegiance yield,
to God who is our help and shield.
Join, heaven and earth, in sweet accord;
sing ""Hallelujah, praise the Lord!""
