778. Father, We Praise You

1 Father, we praise you, now the night is over,
active and watchful, standing now before you;
singing, we offer prayer and meditation:
thus we adore you.

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

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