Come, ye people, come, adore Him

Representative Text

1 Come, you people, come adore him
God in Holy Trinity,
God the Father, Son and Spirit,
ever blessèd unity.

2 All your glory, God almighty,
to the Son and Spirit given,
ere upon the world’s creation
dawned the newborn light of heaven:

3 holy, holy, we adore you
one in power, in nature one;
God the Father, God the Spirit,
God the co-eternal Son.

4 By your Son the wide creation
rose where chaos held its sway;
by the Spirit, God Almighty
swept eternal night away.

5 Son, the Father’s love revealing,
Son, through whom the Spirit came,
blessed Godhead! endless glory
be to your exalted name!
