Father of all, whose laws have stood

Father of all, whose laws have stood
as signposts for our earthly good;
whose Son has come with truth and grace,
your likeness shining in his face:

Give us Christ’s love, its depth and length,
its heart and mind and soul and strength.

2. The first and finest day is yours,
to consecrate all other hours;
all other lords may we disown
and worship bring to you alone:

3. Surround our homes with joy and peace,
with loyalty and cheerfulness;
let parents live without pretence
and children grow in confidence:

4. May bitter hearts fresh mercy feel
and thieving hands no longer steal;
none damn their neighbour with a lie,
nor stoke the fires of jealousy:

5. Father of all, whose laws have stood
as signposts for our earthly good;
whose Son has come with truth and grace,
your likeness shining in his face:
