1 Lord of mercy and of might,
God and Father of us all,
Lord of day, and Lord of night,
Listen to our solemn call;
Listen, while to Thee we raise
Songs of prayer and songs of praise.
2 Shed within our hearts, O shed
Thine own Spirit’s living flame—
Love for all whom Thou hast made,
Love for all who love Thy Name;
Young and old together bless;
Clothe our souls with righteousness.
3 Father, give to us Thy peace;
May our life on earth be blest;
When our trials here shall cease,
May we enter into rest,
Rest within our home above,
Thee to praise and Thee to love.
