    Verse 1
    Father of heaven above,
    Dwelling in light and love.
    Ancient of days,
    Light unapproachable,
    Love inexpressible,
    Thee, the invisible,
    Laud we and praise.

    Verse 2
    Christ the eternal Word,
    Christ the incarnate Lord,
    Saviour of all,
    High throned above all height
    God of God, Light of Light,
    Increate, infinite,
    On Thee we call.

    Verse 3
    O God, the Holy Ghost
    Whose fires of Pentecost
    Burn evermore,
    In this far wilderness
    Leave us not comfortless;
    Thee we love, Thee we bless,
    Thee we adore.

    Verse 4
    Strike your harps, heavenly powers;
    With your glad chants shall ours
    Trembling ascend;
    All praise, O God, to Thee,
    Three in One, One in Three,
    Praise everlastingly,
    World without end.
