Come, ye people, come, adore Him

Full Text

Come, ye people, come, adore Him,
God in Holy Trinity;
God the Father, Son, and Spirit,
Ever blessed Unity.

Thine the glory, God Almighty,
To the Son and Spirit given,
Ere upon the world's creation
Dawned the new-born light of heaven.

Holy, holy, we adore Thee,
One in power, in nature one;
God the Father, God the Spirit,
God the Co-Eternal Son.

By the Son the wide creation
Rose where chaos held its sway;
By the Spirit, God Almighty
Swept eternal night away.

Son, the Father's love revealing,
Son, through Whom the Spirit came,
Blessed Godhead! endless glory
Be to Thine exalted name.
