Eternal, triune Lord !
Let all thy hosts above,
The wonders of thy love.
WE give immortal praise
To God the Father's love,
And better hopes above ;
To God the Son belongs
Immortal glory too,
From everlasting woe :
To God the Spirit's Name
Immortal worship give,
Makes the dead sinner live :
Almighty God! to Thee
Be endless honours done,
The great mysterious One!
HOLY, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty !
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee; Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty!
God in Three Persons, blessed Trinity! Holy, holy, holy! all the saints adore Thee, Casting down their golden crowns around the
glassy sea : Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be. 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!
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!

God in Three Persons, blessed Trinity!
THIS is the day the Lord hath blest,
The day to us in mercy given;
The pledge and type of rest in heaven.
This day within thy courts, O Lord,
Thy people love to seek thy face;
Unfold their wants, implore thy grace.
To God devote the sacred day;
Look up to heaven, and learn the way.
In grace, humility, and love;
Made fitter for thy rest above.
LORD of the Sabbath, Thee we praise,
In concert with the blest,
Employ an endless rest.
Of glory was displayed
The universe was made.
With grief and pain extreme;
'Twas greater to redeem.
More thankful may we grow;
BLEST day of God, most calm, most bright,
The first and best of days ;
Sweet hour of joy and praise.
Daily, O Lord, thy flocks are blest
In pastures large and fair ;
Provided by thy care.
Welcome, kind Shepherd, to thy sheep
Are these foretastes of love;
When safe with Thee above !
How wise thy love, how light its chain,
Which binds us to be free,
And lifts our souls to Thee !
LORD of the Sabbath, hear us pray
Thine earthly Sabbaths, Lord, we love;
In thy blest kingdom we shall be
ANOTHER six days' work is done,
