Father of peace, and God of love,
We own thy power to save,
That pow'r 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
Th'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 cov'nant still;
That all we think and all we do
Be pleasing in thy sight,
Through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise
In endless glory bright.
