Fear not and be just,
For the kingdom is ours,
And the hour of redemption is near.
 
5 The secret of heaven,
The myst’ry below,
That many have sought for so long,
We know that we know,
For the Spirit of Christ,
Tells his servants they cannot be wrong.
 
Hymn 7 • See all creation join
HYMN 7. S. M.
 
1 See all creation join
To praise the eternal God;
The heavenly hosts begin the song,
And sound his name abroad.
 
2 The sun with golden beams,
And moon with silver rays;
The starry lights, and twinkling flames;
Shine to their Maker’s praise.
 
3 He built those worlds above,
And fix’d their wondrous frame;
By his command they stand or move,
And always speak his name.
 
4 The fleecy clouds that rise,
Or falling showers or snow; [p. 13]
Fear not and be just,
For the kingdom is ours,
And the hour of redemption is near.
 
5 The secret of heaven,
The myst’ry below,
That many have sought for so long,
We know that we know,
For the Spirit of Christ,
Tells his servants they cannot be wrong.
