     15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.(KJV)

1. Of the Father’s love begotten 
Ere the worlds began to be, 
He is Alpha and Omega, 
He the Source, the Ending He, 
Of the things that are, that have been, 
And that future years shall see 
Evermore and evermore. 

2. Oh, that birth forever blessed 
When the Virgin, full of grace, 
By the Holy Ghost conceiving, 
Bare the Savior of our race, 
And the Babe, the world’s Redeemer, 
First revealed His sacred face 
Evermore and evermore. 

3. O ye heights of heaven, adore Him; 
Angel hosts, His praises sing; 
Powers, dominions, bow before Him 
And extol our God and King. 
Let no tongue on earth be silent, 
Every voice in concert ring 
Evermore and evermore. 

4. This is He whom Heaven-taught singers 
Sang of old with one accord; 
Whom the Scriptures of the prophets 
Promised in their faithful word. 
Now He shines, the Long-expected; 
Let creation praise its Lord 
Evermore and evermore. 

5. Christ, to Thee, with God the Father, 
And, O Holy Ghost, to Thee 
Hymn and chant and high thanksgiving 
And unending praises be, 
Honor, glory, and dominion, 
And eternal victory 
Evermore and evermore.
