Representative Text

1 Alpha and Omega!
Be Thou my First and last;
The Source whence I descend,
The Joy to which I tend,
When Earth is past.

2 Open my waking eyes,
And fill them with Thy Light;
For Thee each plan begun,
In Thee each duty done,
Close them at night.

3 Enfold me when asleep,
Let soft dews from above
Refresh the long day’s toil;
Wash off the worldly soil,
And strengthen Love.

4 Lay Thy right Hand of pow’r
In blessing on my brow;
Heav’n’s Keys are in Thy Hand,
Its Portals open stand;
I fear not now.

5 Lead Thou me gently in,
Thou who thro’ Death hast past;
Then bring me to Thy Throne,
For Thee I seek alone,
My First and Last.
