1To God the only wise,
Our Savior and our King,
Let all the saints below the skies
Their humble praises bring.
2’Tis His almighty love,
His counsel and His care,
Preserve us safe from sin and death,
And every hurtful snare.
3He will present our souls,
Unblemished and complete,
Before the glory of His face,
With joys divinely great.
4Then all the chosen seed
Shall meet around the throne,
Shall bless the conduct of His grace,
And make His wonders known.
5To our Redeemer God
Wisdom and power belongs,
Immortal crowns of majesty,
And everlasting songs. Amen.
Romans15:25-2725 But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints. 26 For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. 27 It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things.
Romans16:27To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
1 Timothy1:17Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Jude1:24Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
Jude1:25To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
