3. Father, we praise thee, now the night is over

1 Father, we praise thee, now the night is over,
active and watchful, stand we all before thee;
singing, we offer prayer and meditation;
thus we adore thee.

2 Monarch of all things, fit us for thy mansions;
banish our weakness, health and wholeness sending;
bring us to heaven, where thy saints united
joy without ending.

3 All-holy Father, Son and equal Spirit,
Trinity blessèd, send us thy salvation;
thine is the glory, gleaming and resounding
through all creation.
