328. Father of Peace, and God of Love

1 Father of peace, and God of love,
We own Thy power to save,
That power by which our Shepherd rose
Victorious o'er the grave.

2 Him from the dead Thou broughtest again,
When by His sacred blood
Confirmed and sealed forevermore
Th' eternal covenant stood.

3 O may Thy Spirit seal our souls,
And mold them to Thy will,
That our weak hearts no more may stray,
But keep Thy precepts still;

4 That to perfection's sacred height
We nearer still may rise,
And all we think, and all we do,
Be pleasing in Thine eyes.
