1 Holy, blessed, glorious Three
One from all eternity,
Make us vessels of thy grace,
Ever running o'er with praise.
2 Thee we laud with grateful song,
Severed from the guilty throng,
Ransomed by thy Son who died,
By thy Spirit sanctified.
3 O that we thy love might taste!
Bless us, and we shall be bless'd;
Cleanse us Lord, from sin's abuse,
Fit us for the master's use!
4 In our hearts, thy temples, dwell;
With the hope of glory fill:
Be on earth our guest divine,
Then in heaven we shall be thine.
