Lyrics

Glory to God the Fa­ther’s name,
Who from our sinful race
Chose out His favorites to pro­claim
The honors of His grace.

Glory to God the Son be paid,
Who dwelt in humble clay;
And, to redeem us from the dead,
Gave His own life away.

Glory to God the Spi­rit give,
From whose al­migh­ty power
Our souls their heav’nly birth derive,
And bless the happy hour.

Glory to God that reigns above,
Th’eter­nal Three in One,
Who by the wonders of His love
Has made His nature known.
