Today's Hymn: Father Most Holy

Father Most Holy

Father most holy, merciful and loving,
Jesu, Redeemer, ever to be worshipped,
Life-giving Spirit, Comforter most gracious,
God everlasting;

Three in a wondrous Unity unbroken,
One perfect Godhead, love that never faileth,
Light of the angels, succour of the needy,
Hope of all living;

All Thy creation serveth its Creator,
Thee every creature praiseth without ceasing;
We too would sing Thee psalms of true devotion:
Hear, we beseech Thee.

Lord God Almighty, unto Thee be glory,
One in three Persons, over all exalted.
Thine, as is meet, be honour, praise and blessing
Now and for ever.

Latin, from before the 10th century, translated by A.E. Alston
