Glory to God

Glory to the Father's name,
Who from our sinful race
Chose out a people to proclaim
The wonders of his grace.

Glory to the Son be paid,
Who dwelt in humble clay;
And, to redeem us from the dead,
Gave his own life away.

Glory to the Spirit give,
From whose almighty power
Renewed by heav'nly birth we live
And bless each blessed hour.

Glory to God that reigns above,
The everlasting Three in One,
Who by the wonders of His love
Has made His very nature known.

Chosen, and redeemed, renewed
Filled with that love, I dare proclaim
My sin is pardoned and subdued
To the glory and honor of thy name.
