Lyrics

Glory be to God on high
Glory to the Son;
Glory to the Holy Ghost,
Matchless Three in One!
Who in the beginning were,
In the present be;
Who shall reign world without end,
Through eternity.

Thee we worship, Thee adore,
Matchless Three in One!
By our heavenly Father loved,
Ransomed by His Son,
By the Spirit purified,
And from day to day
Guarded on, so watchfully,
Lest we go astray.

Thee we worship, Thee adore,
Matchless Three in One!
Oh, accept our humble praise,
Father, Spirit, Son;
May the holy Comforter
Be our constant guide;
Then with Thee, in earth and Heaven,
Truly we’ll abide.
