482. 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.
