Father and God, from whom the world derives

Father and God, from whom the world derives
all fatherhood in every family,
we bow our knees for power to fill our lives,
your mighty grace, your Spirit’s energy.

2. For Christ to make his home in every heart,
to plant and build us in his love’s pure strength;
to help his church to grasp in every part
love’s boundless height and depth and breadth and length.

3. With all God’s fulness let us now be filled
and know the splendour of his love unknown;
expect the gifts a father gives his child
and share the trophies that our king has won.

4. To God be praise! His power in us can do
far more than we can ask or understand,
through Jesus Christ, who by his church makes new
for every age the glories God has planned.
