Representative Text

1 Almighty Father-God, you give
the gift of life to all who live,
look down on all earth’s sin and strife
and lift us to a nobler life.

2 Lift up our hearts, O King of kings,
to brighter hopes and kindlier things,
to visions of a larger good,
and holier dreams of brotherhood.

3 The world is weary of its pain,
of selfish greed and fruitless gain,
of tarnished honour, falsely strong,
and all its ancient deeds of wrong.

4 Hear now the prayer Your servants pray,
uprising from all lands today,
and, over vanquished powers of sin,
O bring Your great salvation in!
