1 O King of kings, before whose throne
The angels bow, no gift can we
Present that is indeed our own,
Since Heaven and earth belong to thee;
Yet this our souls through grace impart,
The offering of a thankful heart.
2 O Jesu, set at God’s right hand,
With thine eternal Father plead
For all thy loyal-hearted band,
Who still on earth thy succor need:
For them in weakness strength provide,
And through the world their footsteps guide.
3 O Holy Spirit, fount of breath,
Whose comforts never fail nor fade,
Vouchsafe the life that knows no death,
Vouchsafe the light that knows no shade;
And grant that we may through all our days
May share thy gifts, and sing thy praise.
