The Trinity invoked.
And make them fall:
Lord, hear our call.
Our prayer attend:
On us descend.

Spirit of power.

to sing, Help us to praise :
“ Let there be Light."
Gen. i. 3. 2 Cor. iv. 6.
And took their flight;
“Let there be light."
Healing and sight,
“Let there be light.” 3 Spirit of truth and love, Life-giving, holy Dove,
Speed forth Thy flight: Move o'er the water's face, Bearing the lamp of grace, And in earth's darkest place
“Let there be light.” 4 Blessed and Holy Three, Glorious Trinity,
Wisdom, Love, Might;
“Let there be light."
God praised for His Goodness and Truth. He helps the stranger in distress, 4 Ps. cxlvi.
The widow and the fatherless, 2 Happy the man whose hopes rely
And grants the prisoner sweet release. On Israel's God: He made the sky, And earth, and seas, with all their train ; 4 I'll praise Him while He lends me breath; His truth forever stands secure;
And when my voice is lost in death, He saves the opprest, He feeds the poor, Praise shall employ my nobler powers: And none shall find His promise vain.
My days of praise shall ne'er be past, 3 The Lord hath eyes to give the blind;
While life and thought and being last, The Lord supports the sinking mind;
Or immortality endures. He sends the laboring conscience peace;
Rev. Isaac Watts. (1674-1748.) 1719. ab.
1. THEE we
a • dore, e • ter · nal Lord, We praise Thy name with one ac - cord;
Thy saints, who here Thy good- ness see, Through all the world do worship Thee.
* Te Deum laudamus. 2 To Thee aloud all angels cry, The heavens and all the powers on high : Thee, Holy, holy, holy King, Lord God of Hosts, they ever sing. 3 Th' apostles join the glorious throng; The prophets swell th’immortal song; The martyrs' roble army raise Eternal anthems to Thy praise. 4 From day to day, O Lord, do we Highly exalt and honor Thee: Thy name we worship and adore, World without end, for evermore. 5 Vouchsafe, O Lord, we humbly pray, To keep us safe from sin this day: Have mercy, Lord, we trust in Thee; O let us ne'er confounded be.

The Trinity adoreck I O HOLY, holy, holy Lord,
Bright in Thy deeds and in Thy name, For ever be Thy name adored,
Thy glories let the world proclaim. : 0 Jesus, Lamb once crucified
To take our load of sins away, Thine be the hymn that rolls its tide
Along the realms of upper day.
God with us, and in us. 1 ETERNAL Father, when to Thee,
Beyond all worlds, by faith I soar, Before Thy boundless majesty
I stand in silence, and adore. 2 But, Saviour, Thou art by my side:
Thy voice I hear, Thy face I see. Thou art my friend, my daily guide;
God over all, yet God with me. 3 And Thou, Great Spirit, in my heart
Dost make Thy temple day by day: The Holy Ghost of God Thou art,
Yet dwellest in this house of clay. 4 Blest Trinity, in Whom alone
All things created move or rest, High in the heavens Thou hast Thy throne, Thou hast Thy throne within my breast.
Rev. Hervey Doddridge Ganse. (1822–) 1872.
The Spirit of all truth and peace,
Fountain of joy and holiness !
The hands we lift, the knees we bow;
The Trinity humbly worshipped. 2 Almighty Son, incarnate Word,
Our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord,
To us Thy saving grace extend. 3 Eternal Spirit, by whose breath
The soul is raised from sin and death,
To us Thy quickening power extend. 4 Jehovah,-Father, Spirit, Son,
Mysterious Godhead, Three in one,
John Cooper. 1810.
Praise for Salvation. I PRAISES to Him whose love has given,
In Christ, His Son, the Life of Heaven; Who for our darkness gives us light,
And turns to day our deepest night. 2 Praises to Him, in grace who came,
To bear our woe, and sin, and shame; Who lived to die, who died to rise,
The God-accepted sacrifice.
Opened the prison, burst the yoke,
Heirs of an endless liberty.
Within our hearts the love of God;
“O luce que tuâ lates."
Veiled in Thine own eternal Light,
To Thee with loving hearts we cleave. 2 O Father, Thou most Holy One !
O God of God, Eternal Son !
To join them Both is ever Thine. 3 The Father is in God the Son,
And with the Father He is One:
And with them Both is glorified.
And such the Spirit, Three in One:
The Three one perfect Charity.
To Thee, O Son, our hymns we raise;
Santolius Maglorianus. (1624—1684.) Tr. by Rev. Sir Henry Williams Baker. (1821–) 1861.
