Hymn IX.

1FATHER GOD, we glorify,
Thy Love to Adam's Seed,
Love that gave thy Son to die,
And rais'd Him from the Dead:
Him, for our Offences slain,
That we all might Pardon find,
Thou hast brought to Life again
The Saviour of Mankind.

2By thy own Right-hand of Power
Thou hast exalted Him,
Sent the Mighty Conqueror
Thy People to redeem;
King of Saints, and Prince of Peace,
Him Thou hast for Sinners given,
Sinners from their Sins to bless,
And lift them up to Heaven.

3Father, GOD, to Us impart
The Gift Unspeakable,
Now in every waiting Heart
Thy Glorious Son reveal;
Quicken'd with our Living Lord
Let us in thy Spirit rise,
Rise to all thy Life restor'd,
And thank Thee in the Skies.
