TO him that loved the sons of men,

And washed us in his blood,

To royal honors raised our heads,

And made us priests to God:

To him let every tongue be praise,

And every heart be love;

All grateful honors paid on earth,

And nobler songs above.

Behold on flying clouds he comes,

His saints shall bless the day;

While they that pierced him sadly mourn

In anguish and dismay.

Thou art the First and thou the Last;

Time centers all in thee;

Almighty Lord who wast and art,

and evermore shalt be.
