1Lord 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.
2Light 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.
3Graft 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.
4Full 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. Amen.
1 Chronicles4:10And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
Psalm68:32-3532 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah: 33 To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice. 34 Ascribe ye strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds. 35 O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.
