Father of me, and all mankind,
And all the hosts above,
Let every understanding mind
Unite to praise Thy love.

To know Thy nature, and Thy name,
One God in Persons three;
And glorify the great I AM,
Through all eternity.

Thy kingdom come, with power and grace,
To every heart of man;
Thy peace, and joy, and righteousness,
In all our bosoms reign.

The righteousness that never ends,
But makes an end of sin,
The joy that human thought transcends
Into our souls bring in:

The kingdom of established peace,
Which can no more remove;
The perfect power of godliness,
The omnipotence of love.

When shall we hear his trumpet sound,
The latest of the seven?
Come, King of saints, with glory crowned,
Th’eternal God of Heaven.

Judge of thine anti-Christian foe,
Appear on earth again,
And then Thy thousand years below
Before thine ancients reign.
