Hymn/Song Information

Thou great Creator art possessed




Thou, great Creator, art possest,
And Thou alone, of endless rest;
To angels only it belongs
To lift to Thee their ceaseless songs.


But we must toil and toil again
With ceaseless woe and endless pain ;
How then can we, in exile drear,
Lift the glad song of glory here !


Oh Thou, who wilt forgiving be
To all who truly turn to Thee,
Grant us to mourn the heavy cause
Of all our woe, Thy broken laws:


Then to such salutary grief
Let Faith and Hope bring due relief;
And we, too, soon shall be possest
Of ceaseless songs and endless rest.
