546. Great Creator, Lord of all

1 Great Creator, Lord of all,
Father, Friend, on Thee we call;
Hear Thy children's prayer.
Guide us, rule us, as is best,
With Thy loving favor blest,
Till we reach Thy home of rest,
And are with Thee there.

2 Jesus, Who for man didst die,
Who dost plead Thy death on high,
And our place prepare;
From sin's bondage set us free,
Lead us onward after Thee,
Till with joy Thy face we see,
And Thy likeness wear.

3 Holy Spirit, Life, and Light,
Wisdom, Pureness, Love, and Might,
Fallen souls restore:
Guide our spirits when we pray,
Cheer us, help us on our way,
Make us holier day by day,
Till we sin no more.

4 Ever blessed Three in One,
May Thy will in us be done,
Show in us Thy love;
Keep us Thine while here below,
Make us in Thy grace to grow,
And at last Thy glory know
In the world above.

Amen.
