Original text and translations
Lord of creation, to thee be all praise!
Most mighty thy working, most wondrous thy ways!
Who reignest in glory no tongue e’er can tell,
Yet deign’st in the heart of the humble to dwell
Lord of all power, I give thee my will,
In joyful obedience thy tasks to fulfil.
Thy bondage is freedom; thy service is song;
And, held in thy keeping, my weakness is strong.
Lord of all wisdom, I give thee my mind,
Rich truth that surpasseth man’s knowledge to find.
What eye hath not seen and what ear hath not heard
Is taught by thy Spirit and shines from thy Word.
Lord of all bounty, I give thee my heart;
I praise and adore thee for all that thou art;
Thy love to inflame me, thy counsel to guide,
Thy presence to shield me, whate’er may betide.
Lord of all being, I give thee my all;
If e’er I disown thee, I stumble and fall;
But, sworn in glad service thy word to obey,
I walk in thy freedom to the end of the way.
