Translated from the Latin by Rev. George Ratcliffe Woodward

Father, all-holy, merciful, and tender;
Son co-eternal, worthy to be praised;
Spirit of comfort, fount of loving-kindness;
God everlasting,

Trinity holy; Unity unchanging;
Goodness unbounded; very God of heaven;
Light of the Angels; Refuge of the friendless;
Hope universal.

All thy works hymn thee; all thy Saints adore thee;
They for thy pleasure are, and were created;
Now while we also worship thee devoutly,
Hear thou our voices.

Thine be the glory, Deity Almighty,
One in Three Persons, Monarch in the highest;
Glory and honour, song and praise beseem thee
Now and forever.
