    A much better poet than Spring Rice, so perhaps we'll see this in a future hymn book.

    This hymn tune needs a name. ANAKIN, perhaps?

    Here is Charles Wesley's 10.10.11.11 (actually 55.55.65.65 because of inner rhyming) text:
    Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim,
    And publish abroad his wonderful name:
    The name all-victorious of Jesus extol:
    His kingdom is glorious, and rules over all.

    God ruleth on high, almighty to save;
    And still he is nigh, his presence we have:
    The great congregation his triumph shall sing,
    Ascribing salvation to Jesus our King.

    Salvation to God who sits on the throne!
    Let all cry aloud, and honour the Son:
    The praises of Jesus the angels proclaim,
    Fall down on their faces, and worship the Lamb.

    Then let us adore, and give him his right:
    All glory and power, all wisdom and might,
    All honour and blessing, with angels above,
    And thanks never-ceasing, and infinite love.

    Haugen is gnashing his teeth and rending his garments in jealous rage. Coming soon to a hymnal near you.
