Almighty Father of all things that be




Almighty Father of all things that be,
Our life, our work, we consecrate to thee,
Whose heavens declare
thy glory from above,
Whose earth below is witness to thy love.


Thou dost the strength
to workerís arms impart;
From thee the skilled musicianís subtle art;
The grace of poetís pen or painterís hand
Portrays the loveliness of sea and land.


For well we know this weary, fallen earth
Is yet thine own by right of its new birth,
Since that great cross upreared on Calvary
An Easterís power redeemed it,
Lord, for thee.


Then grant us, Lord,
to spend ourselves in praise,
To serve our Saviourís purpose all our days,
To speak and think,
and work and live and move,
Reflecting thine own nature, suffering love;


That so, redeemed by Christ
from sin and shame,
And purified by thine own Spiritís flame,
Ourselves, our work,
and all our powers my be
A sacrifice acceptable to thee.
