435. God of Grace and God of Glory

1 God of grace and God of glory,
On Thy people pour Thy pow'r.
Crown Thine ancient Church’s story;
Bring her bud to glorious flow'r.
Grant us wisdom; grant us courage,
For the facing of this hour,
For the facing of this hour.

2 Lo! the hosts of evil round us
Scorn the Christ, assail His ways!
From the fears that long have bound us,
Free our hearts to faith and praise.
Grant us wisdom; grant us courage,
For the living of these days,
For the living of these days.

3 Cure Thy children’s warring madness;
Bend our pride to Thy control.
Shame our wanton, selfish gladness,
Rich in things and poor in soul.
Grant us wisdom; grant us courage,
Lest we miss Thy kingdom’s goal,
Lest we miss Thy kingdom’s goal.

4 Set our feet on lofty places;
Gird our lives that they may be
Armored with all Christ-like graces
In the fight to set men free.
Grant us wisdom; grant us courage
That we fail not man nor Thee,
That we fail not man nor Thee.
