285. God of Grace and God of Glory

1 God of grace and God of glory,
on Thy people pour Thy power;
crown Thine ancient church's story,
bring her bud to glorious flower.
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 Thy Christ, assail His ways!
Fears and doubts too long have bound us,
free our hearts to work and praise.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
for the living of these days,
for the living of these days.

3 Save us from weak resignation
to the evils we deplore;
let the search for Thy salvation
be our glory evermore.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
serving Thee whom we adore,
serving Thee whom we adore.

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 all free.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
that we fail not man nor Thee!
That we fail not man nor Thee!
