195. Father, Who on Man Dost Shower

1 Father, who on man dost shower
Gifts of plenty from Thy dower,
To Thy people give the power
All Thy gifts to use aright.

2 Give pure happiness in leisure,
Temperance in ev'ry pleasure,
Holy use of earthly treasure,
Bodies clear and spirits bright.

3 Lift from this and every nation
All that brings us degradation;
Quell the forces of temptation;
Put Thine enemies to flight.

4 Father, who hast sought and found us,
Son of God, whose love hath bound us,
Holy Ghost, within us, round us,
Hear us, Godhead infinite.
