We bless the name of our Great God

For His electing love,

Who has predestined everything

To save the ones He loves.


We bless the name of Jesus Christ,

Our Savior and our King,

Who died the chosen race to save

And free salvation bring.


We bless the Holy Spirit too,

Who seals the covenant grace

To all the chosen, ransomed ones

By His effectual grace.


We bless the holy, triune God,

The sacred Three in One,

The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

For all that You have done.


Electing love, redeeming blood,

And mighty, saving grace,

We trace to You our sovereign God,

And joy to sing Your praise.
