Edward A. Dayman, 1867
Almighty Father, heaven and earth|
With lavish wealth before Thee bow;
Those treasures owe to Thee their birth,
Creator, Ruler, Giver, Thou.
2. The wealth of earth, of sky, of sea,
3. To Thee, as early morning's dew,|
Our praises, alms, and prayer shall rise
As rose, when joyous earth was new,
Faith's patriarchal sacrifice.
4. We, Lord, would lay, at Thy behest
5. O Father, whence all blessings come;|
O Son, Dispenser of God's store;
O Spirit, bear our offerings home:
Lord, make them Thine forevermore.
