2 Redeemer, Prophet, Priest, and King! Appointed Judge of all!

Let ransomed souls Thy triumphs sing, Thy foes before Thee fall.

3 Spirit of life, and light, and love!
Thy glorious gifts impart :

From heaven descending like a dove,
Dwell Thou in every heart.

4 Thee, Father, Son, and Spirit! Thee
Let heaven and earth adore,

Thou art, Thou wast, and Thou shalt be God blessed evermore.


313 Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Al

mighty.-Rev. 4, 8.

Hod of Hosts, when heaven and Holy, Holy Lord


Out of darkness, at Thy word,
Issued into glorious birth:

All Thy works around Thee stood,
And Thine eye beheld them good,
While they sang with sweet accord,
Holy. Holy, Holy Lord!

? Holy, Holy, Holy !-Thee,
One Jehovah evermore,
Father, Son, and Spirit, we,
Dust and ashes, would adore;

Lightly by the world esteemed,

From that world by Thee redeemed,
Sing we here with glad accord,
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!

3 Holy, Holy, Holy!-All

Heaven's triumphant choir shall sing,
While the ransomed nations fall
At the footstool of their King:
Then shall saints and seraphim,
Harps and voices, swell one hymn,
Blending in sublime accord,
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!


314 which was, and is, and is to

come.-Rev. 4, 8.

HOLY,Holy Holy! Lord GodAlmighty! Gratefully adoring, our songs shall rise to Thee,

Holy, Holy, Holy! Merciful and Mighty, God in Three Persons, Blessed Trinity. 2 Holy, Holy, Holy! all the saints adore Thee, Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;

Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,

Who wast, and art, and evermore shalt be.

8 Holy, Holy, Holy! though the darkness hide Thee,

Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;

Only Thou art holy: there is none beside Thee

Perfect in power, in love, and purity. 4 Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty! All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth, and sky, and sea:

315 They sung as it were a new song before the throne.-Rev. 14, 3.



with angels round the throne, Cherubim and seraphim,

And the church, which still is one,
Let us swell the solemn hymn:
Glory to the great I AM :
Glory to the Victim Lamb.

2 Blessing, honour, glory, might,
And dominion infinite,

To the Father of our Lord,
To the Spirit and the Word;
As it was all worlds before,
Is, and shall be evermore.


316 We will come unto him and make

our abode with him.—John 14, 2.

"H Holy Saviour! bend Thine ear,

OLY Father! hear my cry,

Holy Spirit! come Thou nigh-
Father, Saviour, Spirit hear!

2 Father, save me from my sin,
Saviour, I Thy mercy crave,
Gracious Spirit, make me clean-
Father, Son, and Spirit save!
8 Father, let me taste Thy love,
Saviour, fill my soul with peace,
Spirit, come my heart to move-
Father, Son, and Spirit bless!
4 Father, Son, and Spirit, Thou
One Jehovah, shed abroad
All Thy grace within me now-
Be my Father and my God!


317 To the only wise God our Saviour,

be glory and majesty.-Jude 25.

10 the Source of every blessing,
Grateful anthems let us raise;
Holy joy, our souls possessing,
Swells the tribute of our praise.
2 Glory to the Almighty Father,
Fountain of Eternal love,

Who, His wandering sheep to gather,
Sent the Shepherd from above.
8 To the Son all praise be given,

Who, with love unknown before, Left the bright abode of heaven, And our sins and sorrows bore. 4 Equal strains of warm devotion Let the Spirit's praise employ ; Author of each holy motion, Source of wisdom, peace, and joy. 5 Thus while our glad hearts ascending Glorify Jehovah's name,

Heavenly songs with ours are blending; There the theme is still the same.


318 Praise ye the name of the Lord.

1 SING Hallelujah! praise the Lord!
Sing, with a cheerful voice;

Exalt our God with loud accord,
And in His name rejoice;

Ne'er cease to sing, thou ransomed host,

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

Until, in realms of endless light,

Your praises shall unite.

2 There, we to all eternity
Shall join the angelic lays,
And sing, in perfect harmony,
To God the Saviour's praise:
"He hath redeemed us by His blood,
Hath made us kings and priests to God;
For us the heavenly Lamb was slain,
Praise ye the Lord!" AMEN.


319 God, blessed for ever. Amen.--Rom.

9, 5.

Praise the Lamb, our expiation,
Priest and King enthroned above.

Who calls our souls from death;
Who saves by His redeeming word,
And new-creating breath:

To praise the Father, and the Son,
And Spirit, all divine-

The One in Three, and Three in One-
Let saints and angels join.




OW to the great and sacred Three,
The Father, Son, and Spirit, be
Eternal praise and glory given,

Through all the world where God is


By all the angels near the throne,
And all the saints in earth and heaven.

Give glory to the Son,

And to the Spirit of His grace
Be equal honour done.
