1 Praise the Father, God of justice:
sinners tremble at his voice,
crowns and creatures fall before him,
saints triumphantly rejoice.

2 Praise the Son, who comes with burning,
purging sin and healing pain,
by whose cross and resurrection
we have died to rise again.

3 Praise the Spirit: power and wisdom,
peace that like a river flows,
word of Christ and consolation,
life by whom his body grows.

4 Praise the Father, Son and Spirit,
One-in-Three and Three-in-One,
God our judge and God our saviour,
God our heaven on earth begun!
