[Hymn II.] GLORY to the FATHER and the SON, &c.

Long Metre.

2 And GOD the SPIRIT, Three in One;
3 Be Honour, Praise and Glory giv'n,
4 By all on Earth, and all in Heav'n.

Common Metre.

1 NOW let the FATHER and the SON,
2 And SPIRIT be ador'd,
3 Where there are Works to make Him known,
4 Or Saints to love the LORD.

Short Metre.

1 GIVE to the FATHER Praise,
2 Give Glory to the SON;
3 And to the SPIRIT of his Grace
4 Be equal Honour done,
