321. Maker, in Whom We Live

1 Maker, in whom we live,
in whom we are and move,
the glory, power, and praise
receive for your creating love.
Let all the angel throng
give thanks to God on high,
while earth repeats the joyful song
and echoes to the sky.

2 Incarnate Deity,
let all the ransomed race
render in thanks their lives
to you for your redeeming grace.
The grace to sinners shown,
you heavenly choirs proclaim,
and cry, "Salvation to our God,
salvation to the Lamb!"

3 Spirit of Holiness,
let all your saints adore
your sacred energy, and bless
your heart-renewing power.
No angel tongues can tell
your love's ecstatic height,
the glorious joy unspeakable,
the beatific sight.

4 Eternal, Triune God,
let all the hosts above,
let all on earth below record
and dwell upon your love.
When heaven and earth have fled
before your glorious face,
may all the saints your love has made
sing everlasting praise.
