329. Maker, in Whom We Live

1 Maker, in whom we live,
in whom we are and move,
the glory, power, and praise
receive for thy creating love.
Let all the angel throng
give thanks to God on high,
while earth repeats the joyful song
and echoes to the sky.

2 Incarnate Deity,
let all the ransomed race
render in thanks their lives
to thee for thy redeeming grace.
The grace to sinners shown,
ye heavenly choirs proclaim,
and cry, "Salvation to our God,
salvation to the Lamb!"

3 Spirit of holiness,
let all thy saints adore
thy sacred energy, and bless
thine heart-renewing power.
No angel tongues can tell
thy love's ecstatic height,
the glorious joy unspeakable,
the beatific sight.

4 Eternal, triune God,
let all the hosts above,
let all on earth below
record and dwell upon thy love.
When heaven and earth are fled
before thy glorious face,
sing all the saints thy love hath made
thine everlasting praise.
