Representative Text

1. Lord of power, Lord of might;
God and Father of us all;
Lord of day, and Lord of night,
Listen to our solemn call:
Listen, whilst to Thee we raise
Songs of prayer, and songs of praise.

2. Light, and love, and life, are Thine,
Great Creator of all good;
Fill our souls with light Divine;
Give us with our daily food
Blessings from Thy heavenly store,
Blessings rich for evermore.

3. Graft within our heart of hearts
Love undying for Thy Name;
Bid us ere the day departs
Spread afar our Maker's fame:
Young and old together bless,
Clothe our souls with righteousness.

4. Full of years, and full of peace,
May our life on earth be blest;
When our trials here shall cease,
And at last we sink to rest,
Fountain of eternal love,
Call us to our home above.

Amen.
