Representative Text

1 O God of life, whose power benign
Doth o'er the world in mercy shine,
Accept our praise, for we are Thine.

2 O Father, uncreated Lord,
Be Thou in every land adored,
Be Thou by all with faith implored.

3 O Son of God, for sinners slain,
We bless Thee, Lord, Whose dying pain
For us did endless life regain.

4 O Holy Ghost, Whose guardian care
Doth us for heavenly joys prepare,
May we in Thy communion share.

5 O Holy, Blessèd Trinity,
With faith we sinners bow to Thee;
In us, O God, exalted be.

Amen.
