UP to thee, Almighty Father,

Ancient of eternal days,

Throned in uncreated glory,

Hear us while our songs we raise,

Praise, for thy unceasing bounty,

Poured with an indulgent hand;

Praise, for blessings still increasing,

Crowning freedom's favored land.

While a nation's heart is leaping,

Mighty in it gushing joy,

May the song of adoration

All its grateful powers employ.

Thine, O Lord, shall be the kingdom,

Thine the power and glory be;

Thine through endless ages rolling,

Thine throughout eternity.

May the grace of Christ our Saviour,

And the Father's boundless love,

With the Holy Spirit's favor,

Rest upon us from above.

Thus may we abide in union

With each other and the Lord;

And possess, in sweet communion,

Joys which earth cannot afford.
