1. Maker, in whom we live, in whom we are and move,
the glory, power, and praise receive for thy creating love.
Let all the angel throng give thanks to God on high,
while earth repeats the joyful song and echoes to the sky.
2. Incarnate Deity, let all the ransomed race
render in thanks their lives to thee for thy redeeming grace.
The grace to sinners showed ye heavenly choirs proclaim,
and cry, "Salvation to our God, salvation to the Lamb!"
3. Spirit of Holiness, let all thy saints adore
thy sacred energy, and bless thine heart-renewing power.
No angel tongues can tell thy love's ecstatic height,
the glorious joy unspeakable, the beatific sight.
4. Eternal, Triune God, let all the hosts above,
let all on earth below record and dwell upon thy love.
When heaven and earth are fled before thy glorious face,
sing all the saints thy love hath made thine everlasting praise.

Father, in Whom we live. C. Wesley. [Holy Trinity.] First published in his Hymns for those that Seek, and those that Have Redemption, &c, 1747, No. 34, in 4 stanzas of 8 lines, and entitled "To the Trinity." In 1776 Toplady included it in his Psalms & Hymns, No. 349, and thus brought it into use in the Church of England. It was included unaltered in the Wesleyan Hymn Book in 1797, and retained in the revised edition of 1875, No. 253. It is also in several American hymn-books. A portion of the cento "Father of all, to Thee; Let endless," &c. (q.v.) is taken from this hymn.
