1 Sound aloud Jehovah's praises,
Tell abroad the awful Name;
Heaven the ceaseless anthem raises,
Let the earth her God proclaim:
God, the hope of every nation,
God, the source of consolation,
Holy, blessèd Trinity!
Holy, blessèd Trinity!

2 This the Name from ancient ages
Hidden in its dazzling light;
This the Name that kings and sages,
Prayed and strove to know aright,
Through God's wondrous Incarnation,
Now revealed the world's salvation,
Ever blessèd Trinity!
Ever blessèd Trinity!

3 Into this great Name and holy,
We all tribes and tongues baptize;
Thus the Highest owns the lowly,
Homeward, heavenward, bids them rise;
Gathers them from every nation,
Bids them join in adoration
Of the blessèd Trinity!
Of the blessèd Trinity!

4 In this Name the heart rejoices,
Pouring forth its secret prayer:
In this Name we lift our voices,
And our common faith declare;
Offering humble supplication,
Thanks, and praise, and veneration
To the blessèd Trinity!
To the blessèd Trinity!

5 Glory be to God the Father,
Glory be to God the Son,
Glory be to God the Spirit,
Great Jehovah, Three in One.
Praise from all in earth and heaven
Unto Thee be ever given,
Holy, blessèd Trinity!
Holy, blessèd Trinity!
