Claude H. Bottoms (1878–1940)


We bless Thy ho­ly name,
Thou who canst save from shame,
Thee we ad­ore;
Let all the peo­ple sing;
Loud let Thy prais­es ring,
Thou art our God and king
For ev­er­more!

Thou art our life and light,
Dispelling all our night,
With mer­cy free;
We bow be­fore Thy throne,
Thy so­ve­reign­ty we own;
Since Thou art God alone,
We come to Thee.

Accept our grate­ful praise,
Guide us in wis­dom’s ways,
Almighty Friend;
Our zeal and strength re­new,
Help us our work to do,
With lov­ing hearts and true,
Till time shall end.

When earth­ly tasks are o’er,
On Ca­naan’s shin­ing shore
How sweet ’twill be,
’Mid scenes of pure de­light,
Where sin can ne­ver blight,
To share Thy glo­ry bright,
