Glory to God the Father be,
The Spirit and the Son ;

Thou Trinity,

In Unity,
Glory to thee! the Persons Three,

The mighty GODHEAD One.

2.

The fiery sun goes down!
O light perennial, Unity,

O ever blessed Trinity,
With radiant love, shed from above,

Brighter than day our spirits crown.

Our song of praise to Thee, -Incense of morn,-was duly paid;

And now as falls the evening shade, Our prayer we bring, that we may sing,

Thy praises in eternity.

Glory to God be given !
And to the Son all honor meet,
Who with the Spirit Paraclete,

The Trinity, in Unity,
Are owned in earth and Heaven,

GLORY TO THEE,

THE VERY TRINITY, THE HOLY UNITY,

THE MOST HIGH GOD.

1.

Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.-Rev.ii.

Rightful Prince of martyrs thou,
Bind thy crown about thy brow!
Fairer far than fading wreath,
Weave we tbis thy crown of death.

Like a gem each rugged stone,
Sparkling with thy life-blood, shone;
Nor could stars more brightly shine,
Studded round thy head divine.
