Hymn 57
1. Jehovah, God the Father, bless,
And thy own work defend;
With mercy's outstretched arms embrace,
And keep us to the end.

2. Preserve the creatures of thy love,
By providential care
Conducted to the realms above,
To sing thy goodness there.

3. Jehovah, God the Son, reveal
The brightness of thy face;
And all thy pardoned people fill
With plenitude of grace.

4. Shine forth with all the Deity,
Which dwells in thee alone;
And life us up, thy face to see
On thy eternal throne.

5. Jehovah, God the Spirit, shine,
Father and Son to show;
With bliss ineffable, divine,
Our ravished hearts o'erflow.
