O God and Father, we our praises bring,
For who more worthy of our praise could be
Than Thou, who seekest worshipers who sing
In spirit and in truth adoringly!
All worlds Thou hast created by the Son,
All things are held by His unmeasured power;
Yet we approach Thee in that glorious One:
What cause for worship in this holy hour!
'Tis He who leads us in this blessed sphere,
In the assembly singing praise to Thee;
What joy to Him that we should thus be near
As suited and in perfect liberty!
Here we unite, our song of joy is one!
And Thou, O God, art fully satisfied.
Amidst the praises led by Christ, Thy Son,
Thou hast a dwelling ever to abide.
