1 O Father blest! Eternal King!
With grateful hearts Thy praise we sing,
Whose glorious power the world upholds,
Whose boundless love the world enfolds.
Sweetest praises we will sing
To our Father, Lord and King;
Be to Him our love and praise,
Who has blessed us all our days.
2 Thee, too, we sing, Eternal Son,
Who hast for men salvation won!
Thy constant presence, Lord, bestow,
To cheer Thy struggling Church below. [Refrain]
3 Thou Holy Spirit, Fount of Love!
Pour out Thy blessings from above;
Dwell in our souls, delightful Guest!
Prepare our hearts and in them rest. [Refrain]
4 O Triune God in whom we live!
All praise and honor Thee we give;
The Church on earth her songs shall raise,
With those in heav’n, to swell Thy praise. [Refrain]
