++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hail, Alpha and Omega, hail,

Thou Author of our faith,

The Finisher of all our hopes,

The Truth, the Life, the Path.

+++++

Hail, First and Last, Thou great I AM,

In whom we live and move;

Increase our little spark of faith,

And fill our hearts with love.

+++++

O, let that faith which Thou hast taught,

Be treasured in our breast;

The evidence of unseen joys,

The substance of our rest.

+++++

Then shall we go from strength to strength,

From grace to greater grace;

From each degree of faith to more,

Till we behold Thy face.
