1 Blest be our everlasting Lord,
Our Father, God, and King!
Thy sovereign goodness we record,
Thy glorious power we sing.
2 By Thee the victory is given:
The majesty divine,
Wisdom and might, and earth and heaven,
And all therein are Thine.
3 The kingdom, Lord, is Thine alone,
Who dost Thy right maintain,
And, high on Thine eternal throne,
O’er men and angels reign.
4 Riches, as seemeth good to Thee,
Thou dost, and honor give;
And kings their power and dignity
Out of Thy hand receive.
5 Thou hast on us the grace bestowed,
Thy greatness to proclaim;
And therefore now thank we our God,
And praise Thy glorious Name.
6 Thy glorious Name, Thy nature’s powers,
Thou hast to man made known;
And all the Deity is ours,
Through Thy incarnate Son.
