Servants of God His Praise Proclaim

Servants of God His Praise Proclaim Lyrics

Author: James Montgomery

Servants of God, in joyful lays,
Sing ye the Lord Jehovah’s praise;
His glorious Name let all adore,
From age to age, forevermore.

Blest be that Name, supremely blest,
From the sun’s rising to its rest;
Above the heav’ns His pow’r is known,
Through all the earth His goodness shown.

Who is like God? so great, so high,
He bows Himself to view the sky;
And yet, with condescending grace,
Looks down upon the human race.

He hears the uncomplaining moan
Of those who sit and weep alone;
He lifts the mourner from the dust;
In Him the poor may safely trust.

O then, aloud, in joyful lays,
Sing to the Lord Jehovah’s praise;
His saving Name let all adore,
From age to age, forevermore.

Servants of God His Praise Proclaim Hymn Story

“Servants of God His Praise Proclaim” is yet another hymn from the pen of James Montgomery. It is a metrical version of Psalm 113, beginning, “Servants of God His Praise Proclaim”, though in other versions it appears with the first line of the last verse as the opening of the hymn – “Servants of God! in joyful lays.”

He wrote this hymn after running away from the Moravian School at Fulneck in UK at the age of seventeen and was working for a man named Lockwood.

In this man’s shop James waited behind the counter for a year and a half and there wasn’t much to do.

This gave him time to write poetry and also produced this hymn.
