Lord of power, Lord of might;
God and Fa­ther of us all;
Lord of day, and Lord of night,
Listen to our solemn call:
Listen, whilst to Thee we raise
Songs of prayer, and songs of praise.

Light, and love, and life are Thine,
Great Creator of all good;
Fill our souls with light divine:
Give us with our daily food
Blessings from Thy heavenly store,
Blessings rich for­ev­er­more.

Graft within our heart of hearts
Love undying for Thy name;
Bid us ere the day departs
Spread afar our Maker’s fame;
Young and old together bless,
Clothe our souls with right­eous­ness.

Full of years and full of peace,
May our life on earth be blest;
When our trials here shall cease,
And at last we sink to rest,
Fountain of eter­nal love,
Call us to our home above.
