{{LinkText|To him that chose us first}}
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 heav'n shall raise
 
  His honors high,
 
  When earth and time
 
  Grow old and die.}}
