Parent of all, omnipotent

Parent of all, omnipotent

Representative Text

1 Parent of all, omnipotent!
In heaven and earth below!
Through all creation's vast extent,
Whose streams of goodness flow:

2 Teach me to know from whence I rose,
And unto what designed;
No private aims may I propose,
That injure human kind.

3 To hear my country's lawful voice,
May my best thoughts incline;
'Tis reason's law, 'tis virtue's choice,
'Tis nature's call, and thine.

4 Me from fair freedom's sacred cause
May nothing e'er divide;
Nor grandeur, gold, nor vain applause,
Nor friendship false, misguide.
