IV. From the Western Churcb.


Te Deum, or the Hymn of St. Ambrose.

[ocr errors]

Thee the Almighty Lord alone.
All the whole Earth doth worship thee,
Thou Father of Eternity:
To thee all Angels loudly cry,
The Heav'ns and all the Pow'rs on high ;
Cherubs and Seraphins proclaim
And cry Thrice-holy to thy Name ;

Holy is our Lord God,
Holy is our Lord God,
Holy is our Lord God,

The Lord of Sabaoth !
, With splendor of thy Glary spread,
Is Earth and Heav'n replenished.
Th' Apoftles glorious company,
The Prophets fellowship, praise thee.
The noble and victorious Hoft
Of Martyrs do thy Praises boast.
The holy Church throughout the Earth
Acknowledge and extol thy Worth,
The Father's Majesty unknown ;
God Son, his Revelation;
Also the holy Ghost, from whom,
As the fole Spring, our Comforts come.

• Heb. i. 3.
O Christ, thou glorious King, we own
Thee to be God's eternal Son.
Thou, undertaking in our room,
Didit not abhor the Virgin's Womb.
The Pains of Death o'ercome by thee,
Made Heav'n to all Believers free.
At God's right Hand thou hast thy seat,
And in the Father's Glory great ;
And we believe the Day's decreed,
When thou shalt judge both quick and dead.

Promote, we pray, thy Servant's Good,
Redeemed with thy precious Blood;
Among thy Saints make them ascend
To glory that shall never end.
