338. [God of love and God of power]

4 God of love and God of power,
make us worthy of this hour;
offering lives if it's thy will,
keeping free our spirits still.
God of love and power,
thou hast called us for this hour.

4 "Wisdom, honor, power, and blessing!"
with angelic host we cry;
round thy throne, thy name confessing,
Lord, we would to thee draw nigh.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Glory be to God on high!
