102. All Glory Be to Thee, Most High

1 All glory be to thee, Most High,
to thee all adoration;
in grace and truth thou drawest nigh
to offer us salvation;
thou showest thy good will to men,
and peace shall reign on earth again;
we praise thy Name forever.

2 We praise, we worship thee, we trust,
and give thee thanks forever,
O Father, for thy rule is just
and wise, and changes never;
thy hand almighty o'er us reigns,
thou doest what thy will ordains;
'tis well for us thou rulest.

3 O Jesus Christ, our God and Lord,
Son of the heav'nly Father,
O thou who hast our peace restored,
the straying sheep dost gather,
thou Lamb of God, to thee on high
out of the depths we sinners cry:
have mercy on us, Jesus!

4 O Holy Spirit, precious gift,
thou Comforter unfailing,
from Satan's snares our souls uplift,
and let thy pow'r, availing,
avert our woes and calm our dread.
For us the Savior's blood was shed;
we trust in thee to save us.
