Great Creator Lord Of All


Great Creator, Lord of all,
Father, Friend, on Thee we call;
Hear Thy children’s prayer.
Guide us, rule us, as is best,
With Thy loving favor blest,
Till we reach Thy home of rest,
And are with Thee there.

Jesus, Who for man didst die,
Who dost plead Thy death on high,
And our place prepare;
From sin’s bondage set us free,
Lead us onward after Thee,
Till with joy Thy face we see,
And Thy likeness wear.

Holy Spirit, Life, and Light,
Wisdom, Pureness, Love, and Might,
Fallen souls restore:
Guide our spirits when we pray,
Cheer us, help us on our way,
Make us holier day by day,
Till we sin no more.

Ever blessed Three in One,
May Thy will in us be done,
Show in us Thy love;
Keep us Thine while here below,
Make us in Thy grace to grow,
And at last Thy glory know
In the world above.
