Thou all Events disposest still;
For all obey thy sovereign Will.

3 The silent Dead no Praises give;
But we who by thy Mercy live,
While we have Breath will Offerings bring,
And grateful Hallelujahs sing.

4 To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Be Honour, Praise and Glory given,
By all on Earth and all in Heaven.
