        (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

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

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

        3. To Thine almighty Spirit be
        Immortal glory given,
        Whose teachings bring us near to Thee
        And train us up for heaven.

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

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