274. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

1.
Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
One in Three and Three in One,
As by the celestial host,
Let thy will on earth be done;
Praise by all to thee be given,
Gracious Lord of earth and heaven.

2.
Vilest of the sinful race,
Lo! I answer to thy call;
Meanest vessel of thy grace,
Grace divinely free for all;
Lo! I come to do thy will,
All thy counsel to fulfil.

3.
If so poor a worm as I
My to thy great glory live,
All my actions sanctify,
All my words and thoughts receive;
Claim me for thy service, claim
All I have, and all I am.

4.
Take my soul and body's powers;
Take my memory, mind and will;
All my goods, and all my hours;
All I know, and all I feel;
All I think, or speak, or do;
Take my heart, but make it new.

5.
Now, O my God, thine own I am;
Now I give thee back thine own;
Freedom, friends and health and fame,
Consecrate to thee alone:
Thine I live, thrice happy I!
Happier still if thine I die.

6.
Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
One in Three and Three in One,
As by the celestial host,
Let thy will on earth be done;
Praise by all to thee be given,
Glorious Lord of earth and heaven.
