Representative Text

1 O joy of God, we seek you in the morning
and long to see the glory of your face:
rise on our darkness with your sun's new dawning.
Flood all our being in this feast of grace.

2 O life of God, for you our spirits hunger;
unless we feed on you we surely die:
with love and faith renewed and hope grown younger,
send us from here to serve you, God most high.

3 O peace of God, you pass our understanding -
safe through each moment keep us every day:
with joy divine and mercy never ending,
direct our path and prosper all our way.
