We praise Thee, glorious Father

1
We praise Thee, glorious Father,
  As objects of Thy grace,
Who for Thine own heart’s pleasure
  Are now before Thy face:
Thy sons marked out for glory
  Known from eternity
With Christ Thy Well-beloved,
  Object supreme to Thee.
2
Who else but Thee, O Father,
  Could in Thine only Son
So bless us with Thy Spirit,
  And have us for Thine own?
Soon shall we be forever
  With Christ in glory; then
We’ll shine in His blest image
  Eternally, Amen!

Henry Smart, the composer of this tune, was a musician and organist in Blackburn, Lancashire. He wanted to write a tune for Reginald Heber's beautiful Missionary Hymn, "From Greenland's Icy Mountains". He said, "I shall call it Lancashire." We rarely use that tune for that hymn any more, but the tune Lancashire lives on. The hymn "Lead On, O King Eternal" was written specifically to be sung to the tune Lancashire.

Henry Smart was blind for the last 15 years of his life. During those years he served as organist in St. Pancras Church, London. - Hymn Stories by Wilbur Konkel
