To him that chose us first,
Before the world began;
To him that bore the curse
To save rebellious man;
  To him that formed
  Our hearts anew
  Is endless praise
  And glory due.

The Father's love shall run
Through our immortal songs;
We bring to God the Son
Hosannas on our tongues:
  Our lips address
  The Spirit's name
  With equal praise,
  And zeal the same.

Let every saint above,
And angel round the throne,
For ever bless and love
The sacred Three in One;
  Thus heaven shall raise
  His honors high,
  When earth and time
  Grow old and die.
