Grace be unto you, and peace, from Him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before His throne. Revelation 1:4

Grace, the fountain of all good,
Ye happy saints, receive,
With the streams of peace overflowèd
With all that God can give;
He who is, and was, in peace
And grace, and plenitude of power,
Come your favored souls to bless,
And never leave you more!
Let the Spirit before His throne
Mysterious one and seven,
In His various gifts sent down,
Be to the churches given;
Let the pure seraphic joy
From Jesus Christ the Just descend,
Holiness without alloy,
And bliss which ne’er shall end.
