Father of peace, and God of love!
We own Thy power to save,
That power by which our Shepherd rose
Victorious o’er the grave.
Him from the dead Thou brought’st again,
When, by His sacred blood,
Confirmed and sealed for evermore,
The eternal covenant stood.
O may Thy Spirit seal our souls,
And mould them to Thy will,
That our weak hearts no more may stray,
But keep Thy precepts still.
