“To him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
The seat of God’s praises is in the church
That little rent of praise which God receives from this world is from the church, a sacred society constituted for the glory of God, every particular member of which, both Jew and Gentile, concurs in this work of praising God.
The Mediator of these praises is Jesus Christ
All God’s gifts come from his to us through the hand of Christ; and all our praises pass from us to him through the same hand. And God should and will be praised thus throughout all ages, world without end; for he will ever have a church to praise him, and he will ever have his tribute of praise from his church. Amen.
