HYMN 38

6,6,6,6,4,4,4,4

A song of praise to the blessed Trinity.

545

I give immortal praise

To God the Father's love,

For all my comforts here,

And better hopes above:

He sent his own

Eternal Son

To die for sins

That man had done.

To God the Son belongs

Immortal glory too,

Who bought us with his blood

From everlasting woe:

And now he lives,

And now he reigns,

And sees the fruit

Of all his pains.

To God the Spirit's name

Immortal worship give,

Whose new-creating power

Makes the dead sinner live:

His work completes

The great design,

And fills the soul

With joy divine.

Almighty God! to thee

Be endless honors done,

The undivided Three,

And the mysterious One:

Where reason fails

With all her powers,

There faith prevails

And love adores.
