1 O God, creation’s secret force,
Yourself unmoved, all motion’s source,
You, from the morn till evening's ray,
Through all its changes guide the day:
2 Grant us, when this short life is past,
The glorious evening that shall last;
That, by a holy death attained,
Eternal glory may be gained.
3 Almighty Father, hear our cry
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord Most High,
Whom with the Spirit we adore
For ever and for evermore.
