3 Thousands, tens of thousands, stand, 6 Hallelujah! Lord, to Thee, Spirits blest, before the throne,

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; Speeding thence at Thy command, Godhead One, and Persons Three;

And when Thy commands are done, Join with us the heavenly host, Singing everlastingly,

Singing everlastingly, To the Blessed Trinity.

To the Blessed Trinity.

2 Praise the Lord—for He hath spoken;

Worlds His mighty voice obeyed; Laws which never shall be broken,

For their guidance He hath made. 3 Praise the Lord-for He is glorious ;

Never shall His promise fail ; God hath made His saints victorious,

Sin and death shall not prevail. 4 Praise the God of our salvation ;

Hosts on high, His power proclaim; Heaven and earth, and all creation,

Laud and magnify His Name!

I GLORY be to God the Father!

Glory be to God the Son!
Glory be to God the Spirit !
Great Jehovah, Three in One :

Glory, Glory,
While eternal ages run !
2 Glory be to Him who loved us,

Washed us from each spot and stain ;
Glory be to Him who bought us,
Made us kings with Him to reign:

Glory, Glory, To the Lamb that once was slain ! 3 Glory to the King of angels !

Glory to the Church's King ! Glory to the King of nations ! Heaven and earth your praises bring:

Glory, Glory,
To the King of glory bring !
4 Glory, blessing, praise eternal !

Thus the choir of angels sings ;
Honor, riches, power, dominion !
Thus its praise creation brings :

Glory, Glory,
Glory to the King of kings !

Only Thine to make us strong.

Ever we address our praise.

6 He by Himself hath sworn; The ransomed nations bow,

I shall behold His face,
They kindle to a flame,

I shall His power adore,
And sound, through all the worlds above, And sing the wonders of His grace
The slaughtered Lamb !

For evermore.
