O King of earth, and air, and sea. Bishop R. Heber. [Lent.] Appeared in his posthumous Hymns, &c, 1827, p. 55, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines, and appointed for the 4th Sunday in Lent. Although apparently based upon the petition in the Lord's Prayer, "Give us this day our daily bread," it was doubtless suggested by the Gospel of the day, the feeding of the five thousand (John vi. 1). It is in common use in Great Britain and America. In the American Unitarian Book of Hymns, 1848, No. 492, it begins with stanza iv., "Thy bounteous hand with food can bless."
