Almighty Father Unoriginate Whom no man




Almighty Father, Unoriginate,
Whom no man hath seen ever,
nor can see;
Who reignest blest
and only Potentate,
Light unapproachable
encircling Thee:
Almighty Father,
hallowed be Thy Name;
Who ever art, unchangeably the same.


Thou lovest us,
else had we never been:
Before we were, in ages long ago,
Thy love had us
and all our wants foreseen,
Creating us that we
Thy love might know,
Yea, Father, Thou,
in Whom we live and move,
Hast loved us with an everlasting love.


Thou madest man
immortal at the first,
An image of Thine own eternity;
And when he fell from life,
through sin accursed,
And lost his right to the life giving tree,
Thy love, unconquered
would to him restore
His life ennobled and forevermore.


Such was Thy love,
Thou didst not even spare
Thy Best-beloved, but
gavíst Him for us all;
To live that human life
beyond compare,
And dying, by His
death retrieve our fall.
In Him Thy love
unbounded we behold,
For, giving Him, Thou canst not
aught withhold.


Thou knowest what we are,
how frail and blind,
Thou still remembírest
that we are but dust:
Like as a father pitieth, Thou art kind,
Thy justice kindness,
and Thy kindness just.
Then hear Thy childrenís prayer
from Heavín Thy throne;
Father, Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done.
