        1. Father of heaven, whose love profound
        A ransom for our souls hath found,
        Before Thy throne we sinners bend;
        To us Thy pardoning love extend.

        2. Almighty Son, Incarnate Word,
        Our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord,
        Before Thy throne we sinners bend;
        To us Thy saving grace extend.

        3. Eternal Spirit, by whose breath
        The soul is raised from sin and death,
        Before Thy throne we sinners bend;
        To us Thy quickening power extend.

        4. Thrice holy! Father, Spirit, Son,
        Mysterious Godhead, Three in One,
        Before Thy throne we sinners bend;
        Grace, pardon, life, to us extend.
