8.5.8.5.


1
GLORY be to God the Father,
And to Christ the Son,
Glory to the Holy Spirit -
Every One.
2
As we view the vast creation,
Planned with wondrous skill,
So our minds would move to worship,
And be still.
3
But, our God, how great Thy yearning
To have sons who love
In Thy house e'en now to praise Thee,
Then above!
4
'Twas Thy thought in revelation,
To present to men
Secrets of Thine own affections,
Theirs to win.
5
So in Christ, through His redemption
(Vanquished evil powers!),
Thou hast brought, in new creation,
Worshippers!
6
Glory be to God the Father,
And to Christ the Son,
Glory to the Holy Spirit -
Ever One.

J.F. Garland
