6 The Book of Praise.
Almighty God, to Thee
Be endless honours done ; The undivided Three, And the mysterious One ! Where reason fails with all her powers, There faith prevails, and love adores.
Isaac Watts. 1709.
O King of kings, before whose throne
The angels bow, no gift can we Present that is indeed our own,
Since heaven and earth belong to Thee : Yet this our souls through grace impart, The offering of a thankful heart.
O Jesu, set at God's right hand, With Thine eternal Father plead
For all Thy loyal-hearted band,
Who still on earth Thy succour need ;
For them in weakness strength provide,
And through the world their footsteps guide,
0 Holy Spirit, Fount of breath,
Whose comforts never fail nor fade, Vouchsafe the life that knows no death,
Vouchsafe the light that knows no shade ; And grant, that we through all our days May share Thy gifts, and sing Thy praise.
Variation by Thomas Darling. 1857. From John Quarles. 1654.
