You deserve complete thanksgiving,
holy Name, eternal friend.
all your people sing your praises,
songs of praise will never end.
bid your Spirit soon descend.
Bathed in mercy are your judgments.
All who seek, your strength will find.
Strong your intervening presence,
cords and fetters to unbind.
Love unfathomed, unconfined!
God of Abraham and Moses,
author of life-giving Law,
in your way and truth we glory,
from your well new life we draw.
faithful love without a flaw.
Holy Name, protecting Joseph,
sold in shackles as a slave,
to temptation's music tone-deaf,
bearing troubles slight and grave.
God of mercy, strong to save.
Word of life, in Jesus winging
peace and hope to all on earth,
lead us on with grateful singing,
joyful faith and godly mirth:
God of sunrise and rebirth!
