10. All Glory Be to God on High

1 All glory be to God on high,
Who hath our race befriended.
To us no harm shall now come nigh;
The strife at last is ended.
God showeth His good will to men,
And peace shall reign on earth again:
O thank Him for His goodness!

2 We praise, we worship Thee, we trust
And give Thee thanks forever,
O Father, that Thy rule is just
And wise, and changes never.
Thy boundless pow're o’er all things reigns,
Thou dost whate’er Thy will ordains;.
’Tis well Thou art our Ruler!

3 O Jesus Christ, our God and Lord,
Begotten of the Father,
Who hast our fallen race restored
And straying sheep dost gather;
Thou Lamb of God, enthroned on high
Behold our need and hear our cry:
Have mercy on us, Jesus!

4 O Holy Spirit, precious Gift,
Thou Comforter unfailing,
Do Thou our troubled souls uplift,
Against the foe prevailing;
Since Christ for us His blood hath shed,
Avert our woes and calm our dread:
We trust in Thee to help us!
