King of Glory, Divine Majesty,
Every perfection adorns thy nature & sustains thy throne;
The heavens & earth are thine,
The world is thine & its fullness.
Thy power created the universe from nothing;
Thy wisdom has managed all its multiple concerns, presiding over nations, families, individuals.
Thy goodness is boundless;
all creatures wait on thee
are supplied by thee,
are satisfied in thee.
How precious are the thoughts of thy mercy & grace!
How excellent thy lovingkindness that draws men to thee!
Teach us to place our happiness in thee,
the blessed God,
never seeking life among the dead things of earth,
or asking for that whihc satisfies the deluded;
But may we prize the light of thy s mile,
implore the joy of thy salvation,
find our heaven in thee.
Thou has attended to our happiness more than we can do;
Though we are fallen creatures thou hast not neglected us.
In love & pity thou hast provided us a Saviour;
Apply his redemption to our hearts,
by justifying our persons, & sanctifying our natures.
We confess our transgressions, have mercy on us.
We are weary, give us rest,
ignorant, make us wise unto salvation,
helpless, let thy strength be made perfect in our weakness,
poor & needy, bless us with Christ's unsearchable riches,
perplexed & tempted, let us travel on unchecked, undismayed, knowing that thou hast said,
'I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.'
Blessed be thy name!
