Bringing light, and shedding love,
Giving gifts to men to-day ;
Making us regenerate,
Faithful subjects unto Thee.
Never let us grieve Thee more:
Thou the wand'ring canst direct. 4 We are dark-be Thou our light;
We are blind-be Thou our sight;
Guide us through the wilderness. 5 To the Blessed Three in One,
To the Father, and the Son,

2 Oh, Source of uncreated Light,
The Father's promised Paraclete ;
3 Plenteous in grace descend from high,
Rich in Thy sevenfold energy ;
Protect and guide us in the way. 4 Immortal honour, endless fame,
Attend the Almighty Father's name :
2 In every clime, by every tongue,
Be God's amazing glory sung ;
3 Unfailing Comfort, heavenly Guide!
Still o'er Thy favoured church preside!

Ghost, dispel our sadness,
Breathe Thy Life, and spread Thy Light!
From that height which knows no measure,
As a gracious shower descend,
Men can wish, or God can send !
Grant us Thy illumination !
3 Be our Friend on each occasion,
God! omnipotent to save ! When we die, be our salvation,
When we're buried, be our grave !
And, when from the grave we rise,
Seat us with Thy saints in glory,
P. Gerhardt. Jacobi and Toplady. (trs.)
God in Three Persons, Blessed Trinity! 2 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. 3 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. 4 Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty ! All Thy works shall praise Thy Name in
earth and sky and sea ;
Bp. R. Heber.
Threefold is Thy glorious might,
3 Threefold let our praises be,
Great mysterious One, to Thee !
4 Holy, holy, holy Lord !
God Almighty! Father ! Word !
5 Threefold is Thy love to me,
Threefold let my graces be,
6 Mighty Father! Blessèd Son!
Holy Spirit ! Three in One!

ROUND the Lord in glory seated,
Cherubim and Seraphim Filled His temple, and repeated
Each to each the alternate hymn :
