O Father in Whose great design




O Father, in Whose great design
Our human love is made divine,
Teach us to give our love to those
By sin beset and all its woes;
On Thee for them to cast our care,
By fasting and by lowly prayer.


Lord Jesu, grant us eyes to see
In our poor brethren Thine and Thee—
To give ourselves where others need;
Where others sin to intercede;
And thus, by fasting and by prayer,
Our brethren’s burden seek to bear.


O Spirit, by Whose grace alone
The many members are made one
O warm our hearts, inspire our will,
That we Thy purpose may fulfill;
And thus, by fasting and by prayer,
Through Thee
“the glorious Church” prepare.


O God, all-loving Three in One
Whom we shall see beyond the sun;
Where walk in white
the blood-bought throng,
Where soars to Thee
the sweet new song,
Grant that we find the brethren there
We sought by fasting and by prayer.
