Words by Father Charles P. Price (1920-1999), an Episcopal priest, theologian, and liturgist


1.  The fleeting day is nearly gone;

we harvest what the morning sowed.

Now grant us undiminished strength

to stand and do what sill remains.

2.  At prayer time near the Temple gate,

Apostles made a lame man walk.

They gave him healing in your Name;

now give us grace to walk your way.

3.  With “It is finished” on your lips,

at that ninth hour you died for us.

Inspire us by hour dying breath

to live for you and do your will.

4.  O God, creation’s ruling force,

O Jesus, crucified for us,

O Spirit, bringing power and health,

we praise and bless you every hour.
