Father of spirits whose divine control




Father of spirits,
whose divine control
doth bind the soul
and body into one,
thou wilt restore
this body now undone;
for once it was
the mansion of a soul,
where dwelt the
glowing wisdom of thy Son.


Thou, Maker of the body,
dost ordain
that this thine image,
moulded by thy will,
our every hope
in glory shall fulfil;
so, till the body
thou dost build again,
thou wilt preserve
the spirit freed from ill.


In that blest region
shall this spirit dwell
where flowers undying
bloom on every side:
for, lo, we trust thy word,
0 Crucified,
when in thy triumph
over death and hell,
the thief forgiven
took thee for his guide.


Our brother/sister
goeth by the shining way,
that ever to the faithful open lies:
Lord, train thy servant
now in Paradise,
and bless him/her
in his/her fatherland, we pray,
till thou shalt bid
his/her body to arise.
