248. Father of Glory, to Thy Name

1 Father of glory, to Thy name
Immortal praise we give,
Who dost an act of grace proclaim
And bid us rebels live.

2 Immortal honor to the Son,
Who makes Thine anger cease;
Our lives He ransomed with His own,
And died to make our peace.

3 To Thine almighty Spirit be
Immortal glory giv'n,
Whose teachings brings us near to Thee
And train us up for heav'n.

4 Let men with their united voice
Adore the eternal God
And spread His honors and their joys,
Through nations far abroad.

5 Let faith and love and duty join
One grateful song to raise;
And saints in earth and heaven combine
In harmony and praise.
