Lyrics

Father of glory, to Thy name,
Immortal praise we give,
Who dost an act of grace proclaim
And bid us rebels live.

Immortal honor to the Son,
Who makes Thine anger cease;
Our lives He ransomed with His own
And died to make our peace.

To Thine almighty Spirit be
Immortal glory giv’n,
Whose teachings bring us near to Thee
And train us up for Heav’n.

Let men with their united voice
Adore th’eternal God
And spread His honors and their joys
Through nations far abroad.

Let faith and love and duty join
One grateful song to raise;
Let saints in earth and Heav’n combine
In harmony and praise.
