Almighty Father of all things that be
Tune: Chilton Foliat
Metre: 10 10 10 10

 

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.

 

For well we know this weary, soilŤd earth

Is yet thine own by right of its new birth,

Since that great cross upreared on Calvary

Redeemed it from its fault and shame to thee.

 

Thine still the changeful beauty of the hills,

The purple valleys flecked with silver rills,

The ocean glistening Ďneath the golden rays;

They all are thine, and voiceless speak thy praise.

 

Thou dost the strength to workmanís arm impart;

From thee the skilled musicianís mystic art,

The grace of poetís pen or printerís hand

To teach the loveliness of sea and land.
