4. Father, we praise you, now the night is over

1 Father, we praise you, now the night is over;
Active and watchful, stand we all before you;
Singing, we offer prayer and meditation:
Thus we adore you.

2 Ruler of all things, fit us for your mansions;
Banish our weakness, health and wholeness sending;
Bring us to heaven, with 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.
