SAINTS, LIFT YOUR VOICES

But they that wait upon the Lord . . . mount up with wings as eagles (Isa. 40:31).

There is none like Him; None can compare;
No god His equal, no prince His heir!
Lift up your eyes and see His great might!
Soar like an Eagle, on wings of flight!

Chorus:
Saints, lift your voices, tho’ dark your days!
Lift up your spirits, sing out His praise!
Upward the calling, brighter the light!
Soaring like eagles, on wings of flight!

Have you not known Him? Have you not heard?
God is Creator of all the earth.
Lift up your eyes and see His great might!
Soar like an Eagle, on wings of flight!

Chorus

Some will grow weary; Sin they’ll pursue.
Servants of God their pow’r He’ll renew.
Upward the calling, brighter the light!
Soaring like eagles, on wings of flight!

Chorus

Accapella singing Saints Lift Your Voices

Saints, Lift Your Voices
