1 God of eternity, Saviour and King,
Help us to honor Thee,
Help while we sing;
Now may the clouds of night
Break into splendor bright,
Jesus, our life and light,
Our Lord and King!

2 God of eternity, Ancient of Days,
Glorious in majesty,
Author of Praise;
Hear Thou our earnest call,
While at Thy feet we fall,
Jesus, our all in all,
Our Lord and King!

3 God of eternity, Ruler divine,
Strength of the mighty hills,
All power is Thine;
Boundless Thy reign shall be,
Wondrous Thy victory,
Earth shall be fill'd with Thee,
Our Lord and King!

4 God of eternity, Love is Thy name,
God of the earth and sea,
Thee we proclaim;
Love, thro' Thine only Son,
Thy work of grace hath done;
O blessed Three in One,
Our Lord and King!
