    WE give immortal praise
   To God the Father’s love,
    For all our comforts here,
        And better hopes above.
He sent His own eternal Son
To die for sins that man had done.
2      To God the Son belongs
        Immortal glory too,
    Who bought us with His blood
        From everlasting woe;
And now He lives and now He reigns,
And sees the fruit of all His pains.
3      To God the Spirit’s name
        Immortal worship give,
    Whose new-creating power
        Makes the dead sinner live.
His work completes the great design,
And fills the soul with joy divine.
4      Almighty God, to Thee
        Be endless honours done,
    The undivided Three,
        And the mysterious One.
Where reason fails, with all her powers,
There faith prevails and love adores.
Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
