Amen Amen Amen Amen.



BE Glorified in thy Creation;
In ev'ry Tongue, in ev'ry Nation,
Resounding thy blest Name.


Send us the [2] Day Star of the Morning;
And thy Triumphant Spouse Adorning,
Thy Glorious Kingdom come.


No more our Wills, no more our Passions;
No more our Lusts, nor our fond Fashions.
Thy only Will be done.


As Heavenly Powers to us conveying,
So all the Powers on Earth obeying
Thy Sovereign Word alone.


With daily Food in Strength Renew us;
And with thy Heavenly Grace bedew us,
The Bread by which we Live.


And of thy own Free Grace Relieve us;
Our Trespasses and Sins forgive us;
As others we Forgive.


And lead us not into Temptation:
But be from Evil our Salvation,
And from its Author.


Thine is the Kingdom, thine the Glory,
The Pow'r as found in Ancient Story,
And shall be Evermore.

  1. Belonging to the Highest Heaven
  2. The Spirit for Preparation of the Kingdom.
