Everlasting glory be,
 
God and Father, unto Thee!
 
'Tis with joy Thy children raise
 
Hearts and voices in Thy praise.

Thou the light that showed our sin,
 
Showed how guilty we had been:
 
Thine the love that us to save
 
Thine own Son for sinners gave.

Called to share the rest of God
 
In the Father's blest abode,
 
God of love, and God of light,
 
In Thy praises we unite.

Gladly we Thy grace proclaim,
 
Knowing now the Father's name:
 
God and Father, unto Thee
 
Everlasting glory be!
