Hymn/Song Information

Ancient of Days who sittest throned in




Ancient of Days, who sittest,
throned in glory;
To thee all knees are bent,
all voices pray;
Thy love has blessed
the wide world's wondrous story,
With light and life
since Eden's dawning day.


O Holy Father,
who hast led thy children
In all the ages,
with the Fire and Cloud,
Through seas dry-shod,
through weary wastes bewildering,
To thee, in reverent love,
our hearts are bowed.


O Holy Jesus,
Prince of Peace and Saviour,
To thee we owe the peace
that still prevails,
Stilling the rude wills
of men's wild behaviour,
And calming passion's fierce
and stormy gales.


O Holy Ghost, the Lord
and the Life-giver,
Thine is the quickening power
that gives increase.
From thee have flowed,
as from a pleasant river
Our plenty, wealth,
prosperity, and peace.


O Triune God, with heart
and voice adoring,
Praise we the goodness
that doth crown our days
Pray we that thou wilt hear us,
still imploring
Thy love and favour,
kept to us always.
