Father and God of all mankind,
And all the hosts above,
Let every understanding mind

In all our bosoms reign.

The righteousness that never ends,
But makes an end of sin;
The joy that human thought transcends,
Now to our souls bring in:

The kingdom of established peace,
Which can no more remove;
The perfect powers of godliness,
The omnipotence of Love.
