1 Ceaseless praise be to the Father,
By whose power and grace we live;
Who, our wayward souls to gather,
Did his Well-beloved give.
2 To the Son be praise unending,
Who, our ruined souls to save,
From his heavenly throne descending,
Hasted to the cross and grave.
3 To the Holy Spirit render
Grateful, everlasting praise;
Who, long-striving, patient, tender,
Waits our soul form death to raise.
4 Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
One Jehovah we adore!
May we all thy peace inherit,
Saved by thee for evermore.
