This text follows the Trinitarian outline of Paul’s hymn written “to the praise of [God’s] glorious grace” and recorded for us in Ephesians 1: Father (vs.3-6), Son (vs.7-12), and Spirit (vs.13-14)…
Great God and Father of our Lord–
Our Maker and our King,
We praise You for Your glorious grace
That grants us ev’rything.
Before You ever framed the world
You chose us as Your own,
And made us heirs with Christ Your Son
By sov’reign grace alone.
Sing Alleluia to our God,
And praise His saving Son!
Give honor to the Holy Ghost!
Adore the Three-in-One!
Beloved, bleeding Son of God–
Our saving sacrifice,
We praise You for Your priceless blood
That purchased Paradise.
In You we are redeemed by God
From sin’s accursed disgrace;
Now, as His children, we’ve received
A legacy of grace.
Securing Spirit giv’n by God
To those who trust the Son,
We praise You for Your guarantee
That Calv’ry’s work is done.
You shelter and secure our souls
Until we stand complete
Before the glorious throne of God
Where faith and sight will meet.
