1  O Father blest, Thy Name we sing
Whose power the world upholdeth;
And Thee, O Christ, of kings the King,
Whose love our souls enfoldeth;
And Thee, O Holy Ghost, we praise,
O be our guide through all our days.

2  O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God of our salvation,
The church on earth, and heavenly host,
Are one in adoration.
With heart and mind, may we adore
Our gracious God for evermore.
