33: GLORY to Thee, our Father, Godby Frances George Burkitt (1864-1929)
1 GLORY to Thee, our Father, God,
Thou source of every joy;
O'erflowing praise to Thee we give;
This is our sweet employ.
2 In Thee our souls have found their rest;
Of love divine the spring,
Giver of every perfect gift,
Thy praise we gladly sing.
3 Glory to Thee, O Son of God!
We celebrate Thy worth
Thou central Sun of life and joy
In heaven and on earth.
4 Thyself the Son, the Eternal God,
The Word, the great I AM,
Revealed in flesh Thou didst become,
In nature, truly man.
5 Praise for the Holy Spirit given,
Our Teacher and our Guide,
By whom from heaven's unbounded store
Our every need's supplied.
6 The Comforter, whose service is
To glorify the Son,
To take the treasures of His love
And make them all our own:
7 Glory to Thee, God Infinite,
And praise below --- above;
Angelic hosts proclaim Thy power,
Redeemed ones sing Thy love.
