1.  Father, we praise thee, now the light is over,

active and watchful, stand we all before thee;

singing we offer prayer and meditation;

thus we adore thee.

2.  Monarch of all things, fit us for thy mansions,

banish our weakness, health and wholeness sending;

bring us to heaven, where thy saints united

joy without ending.

3.  All holy Father, Son, and equal Spirit,

Trinity blessed, send us thy salvation;

thine is the glory, gleaming and resounding

through all creation.
