Stand Up and Bless the Lord

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 662
Text: James Montgomery
Music: Genevan Psalter; adapt. by William Crotch
Tune: ST. MICHAEL, Meter: SM

1.	Stand up and bless the Lord, 
	ye people of his choice; 
	stand up and bless the Lord your God 
	with heart and soul and voice. 

2.	Though high above all praise,
	above all blessing high, 
	who would not fear his holy name, 
	and laud and magnify? 

3.	O for the living flame 
	from his own altar brought, 
	to touch our lips, our minds inspire, 
	and wing to heaven our thought! 

4.	God is our strength and song, 
	and his salvation ours; 
	then be his love in Christ proclaimed 
	with all our ransomed powers. 

5.	Stand up and bless the Lord; 
	the Lord your God adore; 
	stand up and bless his glorious name, 
	henceforth forevermore.
