1 We give immortal praise
to God the Father’s love,
for all our comforts here,
and better hopes above;
Hh sent his own eternal Son
to die for sins that we had done.
2 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.
3 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 wills the world with joy divine.
4 Almighty God, to thee
be endless honor done,
the undivided Three
And the mysterious One:
where reason fails with all her powers,
there faith prevails, and love adores.
