Maker, Upholder, Ruler!--Thee
Let all that live adore,
Who art, and wast, and yet shalt be,
God blessed evermore.
Redeemer, Prophet, Priest, and King!
Appointed Judge of all!
Let ransom'd souls Thy triumphs sing,
And foes before Thee fall.
Spirit of life, and. light, and love!
To us Thy gifts impart;
From heaven descending like a dove,
Come dwell in every heart.
Thee, Father, Son, and Spirit! Thee,
Let heaven and earth adore;
Thou art, Thou wast, and Thou shalt be
One God for evermore.
