O God of truth, O Lord of might,
Who ordírest time and change aright,
Brightíning the morn with golden gleams,
Kindling the noondayís fiery beams.
in us the flame of strife,
From passionís heat preserve our life,
Our bodies keep from perils free,
And give our souls true peace in Thee.
Almighty Father, hear my cry
Through Jesus Christ our Lord most high,
Who with the Holy Ghost and Thee
Doth live and reign eternally.
