1 God of ages, great and mighty!
Who upholdest heav'n and earth;
By whose truth and tender mercy
I have been led on from birth,
Night and sleep now pass away--
Welcome be Thy holy day.
2 For this day so fair and holy,
Be Thou by my spirit blest,
Through Thy Word still nearer heaven
Guide my spirit toward its rest:
Than the work of praise and prayer
Let me know no higher care.
3 O the beauty of Thy service!
O the sweetness of Thy Word!
Sweeter far than honey gathered
From the flower by bee or bird:
Blessed all, who day and night
Make Thy word their chief delight.
4 O my God, speak Thou Thine Amen!
For we are Thy chosen own;
Be Thy praise by all exalted,
And Thy glorious name made known,
Till aye we may, through grace,
See and serve Thee face to face.
