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.

1.  The golden sun lights up the sky,

imparting vigor to the day.

Amid our customary round,

we offer you our prayer and praise.

2.  At the third hour you took your cross,

you stumbled, Lord, beneath its weight.

Now help us bear our daily load

and strive to follow where you lead.

3.  At the third our your faithful band

was clothed with power on Pentecost.

Bestow your Spirit on us now,

and give us strength to do your will.

4.  O God, creations’s ruling force,

O Jesus, crucified for us,

O Spirit, love’s life-giving ray,

we praise and bless you every hour.

1.  Come, thou Holy Spirit bright;

come with thy celestial light;

come, thou source of blessings sure;

come within our hearts to shine.

2.  Thou, of comforters the best,

thou, the sou’s most welcome guest,

of our peace thou art the sign.

In our labor, be our aid;

in our summer, cooling shade.

Every bitter tear refine.

3.  Brighter than the noonday sun,

fill our lives which Christ has won;

fill our hearts and make them thine.

Where thou art not, we have nought:

all our word and deed and thought

twisted from they true design.

4.  Bend the stubborn heart and will;

melt the frozen, warm the chill;

rule us by the judgment’s line.

Cleanse us with thy healing power;

what is barren bring to flower;

to thy love our sins consign.

5.  To thy people who adore

and confess thee evermore,

thy blest seven-fold gift assign.

Grant us thy salvation, Lord,

boundless mercy our reward,

joys which earth and heaven entwine.
