1 Bless'd be the Father. and his Love,
To whose celestial Source we owe
Rivers of endless Joys above,
And Rills of Comfort here below.
Glory to Thee, Great Son of God,
From whose dear wounded Body rolls
A precious Stream of vital Blood,
Pardon and Life for dying Souls.
2 We give Thee, Sacred Spirit Praise,
Who in our Hearts of Sin and Woe
Makes living Springs of Grace arise,
And into boundless Glory flow.
Thus God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit we adore,
That Sea of Life and Love unknown
Without a Bottom or a Shore.
