Full Text

1 God of love and truth and beauty, hallowed be thy name;
fount of order, law, and duty, hallowed be thy name.
As in heav'n thy hosts adore thee, and their faces veil before thee,
so on earth, Lord, we implore thee, hallowed be thy name.

2 Lord, remove our guilty blindness, hallowed be thy name;
show thy heart of loving kindness, hallowed be thy name,
By our heart's deepfelt contrition, by our mind's enlightened vision,
by our will's complete submission, hallowed be thy name.

3 In our worship, Lord most holy, hallowed be thy name;
in our work, however lowly, hallowed be thy name.
In each heart's imagination, in the Church's adoration,
in the conscience of the nation, hallowed be thy name.
