131: PRAISE we to the Father give

by James Montgomery (1771-1854)
1 PRAISE we to the Father give,
God in whom we move and live;
Children's praise He loves to hear;
Children's songs delight His ear.

2 Praise we to the First-born bring,
Christ the Prophet, Priest and King;
Glad we raise our sweetest strain
To the Lamb that once was slain.

3 Praises for the Holy Ghost
Sent from heaven at Pentecost;
'Tis through Him alone we live,
And the precious truth receive.

4 Blest our portion, thus to be
Glorying in the Trinity;
For the Gospel from above,
For the word that God is love.
