Lyrics copied from P3 and perl-formatted --QMacrocarpa 14:26, 12 August 2007 (PDT):

"COME sing, ye choirs exultant,"
"    Those messengers of God,"
"Through whom the living Gospels"
"    Came sounding all abroad!"
"Whose voice proclaimed salvation"
"    That poured upon the night,"
"And drove away the shadows,"
"    And flushed the world with light."
""
"He chose them, our Good Shepherd,"
"    And, tending evermore"
"His flock through earth's four quarters,"
"    In wisdom made them four;"
"True Lawgiver, he bade them"
"    Their healing message spread,"
"One charter for all nations,"
"    One glorious title-deed."
""
"In one harmonious witness"
"    The chosen Four combine,"
"While each his own commission"
"    Fulfils in every line;"
"As, in the Prophet's vision,"
"    From out the amber flame"
"In form of visage diverse"
"    Four living creatures came."
""
"Lo, these the wingèd chariots"
"    That bring Emmanuel nigh;"
"The golden staves uplifting"
"    The ark of God on high;"
"And these the fourfold river"
"    Of Paradise above,"
"Whence flow for all the nations"
"    New mysteries of love."
""
"Foursquare on this foundation"
"    The Church of Christ remains,"
"A house to stand unshaken"
"    By floods or winds or rains."
"O glorious happy portion"
"    In this safe home to be,"
"By God, true Man, united"
"    With God eternally!"
""
