643 ~ Father Who On Us Do Shower


Father, who on us do shower Gifts of plenty form Your dower, To Your people give the power All Your gifts to use aright.


Give pure happiness in leisure Temperance in every pleasure, Wholesome use of earthly treasure Bodies clean and spirits bright.


Lift from this and every nation All that brings us degradation; Quell the forces of temptation; Put Your enemies to flight.


Father, You who sought and found us, Son of God, whose love has bound us, Holy Spirit, in us, round us, Hear us, Godhead infinite.
