868Father of LightsAdapted by Rev. Charles William Alfred Brooke10.10.10.6.

1Father of lights! On Thee no shadow falls,
Nor darkness gathers round Thine ancient throne,
Thee do we thank, we praise, we magnify,
Confessing Thee alone!
2Father of life! From Whom all being takes
Its secret source, and Who through weary quest
Callest at length the wanderers of the world
To find in Thee their rest.
3Father of love! In this Thy name of names,
We lift on high the swelling note of praise.
In this our chant accept the homage due,
The debt of bygone days.
4Hail Three in One! Father, Co-equal Son
And Holy Spirit, unto Thee we bend:
All praise is Thine, in ages past, is now,
And nevermore shall end. Amen.
James1:17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
