A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Friday, March 03, 2006
  O God of Truth, O Lord of Might
Words: At­trib­ut­ed to Am­brose of Mi­lan (cir­ca 340-397) (Rec­tor po­tens, ver­ax De­us); trans­lat­ed from La­tin to Eng­lish by John M. Neale in The Hymn­al Not­ed, 1852.

O God of truth, O Lord of might,
Who ord’rest time and change aright,
Bright’ning the morn with golden gleams,
Kindling the noonday’s fiery beams.

Quench Thou in us the flame of strife,
From passion’s heat preserve our life,
Our bodies keep from perils free,
And give our souls true peace in Thee.

Almighty Father, hear my cry
Through Jesus Christ our Lord most high,
Who with the Holy Ghost and Thee
Doth live and reign eternally.
