Thee God we praise, Thy name we bless, Thee Lord of all we do confess;

Ho!

The whole cre- a - tion worships Thee, The Fa-ther of

e- ter- ni

2 To Thee aloud all angels cry,

8 Thou overcamest death's sharp sting, The heavens and all the powers on high, Believers unto heaven to bring; The cherubs and the seraphs join, At God's right hand, exalted there,

And thus they hymn Thy praise divine: Thou dost the Father's glory share. 3 O holy, holy, holy Lord,

9 And we believe Thou wilt descend Thou God of hosts, by all adored:

To be our judge, when comes the end; Earth and the heavens are full of Thee. Thy servants help, whom Thou,O God, Thy light, Thy power, Thy majesty. Hast ransomed with Thy precious

blood. 4 The apostles join the glorious throng, The prophets swell the immortal song, 10

10 Among Thy saints let us be found The white-robed hosts of martyrs bright

With glory everlasting crowned; All serve and praise Thee day and night.

Thy people save from age to age,

And bless Thy chosen heritage. 5 The holy Church in every place

11 O guide them, lift them up for aye; Throughout the world exalts Thy praisa

We magnify Thee day by day, And ever doth acknowledge Thee,

Thy name we worship and adore, Father of boundless majesty.

World without end, for evermore. 6 O God eternal, mighty King,

12 Vouchsafe, O Lord, we humbly pray, We unto Thee our praises bring;

To keep us safe from sin this day: And to Thy true and only Son,

O Lord, have mercy on us all, And Holy Spirit, Three in One.

Have mercy on us, when we call. 70 King of glory, Christ the Lord, 13 Thy mercy, Lord, to us extend, God's everlasting Son-the Word, As on Thy mercy we depend: To rescue mankind from its doom, Lord, I have put my trust in Thee, Thou didst our very flesh assume. Confounded let me never be.

Niceta of Remesiana: ca. 392

2 We praise, we worship Thee, we trust,

And give Thee thanks for ever,
O Father, that Thy rule is just

And wise, and changes never;
Thy boundless power o'er all things reigns,
Done is whate'er Thy will ordains;

3 O Jesus Christ, God's only Son,

Who with Thy Father reignest,
Thou, who didst save a world undone,

Our hope and stay remainest;
O Lamb of God, to Thee on high
From out our depths we sinners cry,

Have mercy on us, Jesus!
4 O Holy Ghost, Thou precious gift,

Thou Comforter unfailing,
O’er Satan's snares our souls uplift,

And let Thy power availing
Avert our woes and calm our dread,
For us the Savior's blood was shed,
We trust in Thee to save us!

Beholds the troubled waters;
And at His word the storm is stayed
Which made His children's heart a-

fraid: .
To God all praise and glory.

4 I cried to God in my distress,

His mercy heard me calling;
My Savior saw my helplessness

And kept my feet from falling;
For this, Lord, praise and thanks to

Thee!
Praise God most high, praise God

with me!
To God all praise and glory!
5 The Lord is never far away,

Forsakes his people never;
He is their refuge and their stay,

Their peace and trust forever;
And with a mother's watchful love
He guides them wheresoe'er they

rove:
To God all praise and glory!
6 When every earthly hope has flown

From sorrow's sons and daughters, Our Father from His heavenly throne

7 Thus all my pilgrimage along

I'll sing aloud Thy praises,
That men may hear the grateful song

My voice unwearied raises:
Be joyful in the Lord, my heart!
Both soul and body, bear your part!

To God all praise and glory!

8 O ye who bear Christ's holy name,

Give God all praise and glory!
All ye who own His power, proclaim

Aloud the wondrous story;
Cast each false idol from His throne,
The Lord is God, and He alone:
To God all praise and glory!

J. J. Schutz, 1675

Our Father, throned in heaven a - bove, All glo - ry to Thy name of love!

[ocr errors]

Thy kingdom come; Thy ho-ly will May earth as well as heaven ful-fill.

2 Give us this day our daily food,

With all we need of promised good;
And freely all our sins remit,

As we our debtors freely quit.
3 Defend us from the tempter's ways,

Uphold when tried, when fallen raise:
For power is Thine, and boundless reign,
In glory evermore, Amen.
