Glory to Thee, great Son of God!
Forth from thy wounded body rolls A precious stream of vital blood,
Pardon and life for dying fouls. We give the sacred Spirit praise,
Who in our hearts of sin and woe, Makes living springs of grace arise,
And into boundless glory flow. Thus God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit we adore : That Sea of Life and Love unknown,
Without a bottom, or a fhore.
7. As the 148th. Watts, altered.
To God the Father's love,
And better hopes above :
Immortal glory too,
From everlasting woe :
Immortal praises gire,
Makes the dead linner live
'Tis he completes the great design,
Be endless honors done.
Yet undivided One:
Before the world began ;
To save rebellious man;
Thro' our immortal songs ;
Hosannas on our tongues :
And angel round the throne,
The sacred Three in One :
9. As the 113th.
The Father, Son, and Spirit, be
10. As the 148th.
Perpetual honors raise;
To God the Spirit praise :
11. L. M.
Praise him all creatures here below;
12. C. M.
And Spirit be ador'd,
13. S. M. ТО the eternal Three,
In Will and Essence One, Be universal homage paid,
Coequal honors done.
Jesus the Lord; how heav'nly fair
TOW for a tone of lofty praise
To great Jehovah's equal Son; Awake, my voice, in heav'nly lays
Tell the loud wonders he hath done, Sing, how he left the worlds of light,
And the bright robes he wore above; How swift and joyful was his flight,
On wings of everlasting love. Down to this base, this finful earth
He came to raise our nature high-; He came t' atone Almigbty wrath;
Jesus the God, was born to die. Hell and its lions roar'd around;
His precious blood the monster spilt ; While weighty forrows pressd him down,
Large as the loads of all our guilt. Deep in the shades of gloomy death,
Th’ Almighty Captive Pris'ner lay; Th' Almighty Captive left the earth,
And rose to everlasting day.
Jesus, the God, exalted reigns ;
And echo to the heav'nly plains.
