1Almighty Father! dwelling in the light
Of greater suns than beat on earthly thrones,
'Tis Thou hast raised our Empire to its height,
And every heart Thy power and glory owns.
Eternal praise Thy faithful children bring,
O crown with blessings our beloved King.

2O unity of never failing power,
Give us the mother in the son to-day,
And shed, blest Spirit, in his needful hour,
Thy sanctifying influence on his way.
Eternal praise, &c.

3Fount of all wisdom, with Thy Heavenly light,
Illume and guide Thy servant on the road
Of this life's pilgrimage, to read aright
His people's welfare and his work for God.
Eternal praise, &c.

4King of all Kings, throned in eternal state,
Stablish and strengthen King and people, then
In strength and peace our lands and seas shall wait
The consummation of Thy Great Amen.
Eternal praise, &c. Amen.

Or may be sung to A. & M., No. 322.
