Almighty Father, who dost give

Almighty Father, who dost give
the gift of life to all who live,
look down on earth's sin and strife
and lift us to a nobler life.

Lift up our hearts, O King of kings,
to brighter hopes and kindlier things,
to visions of a larger good,
and holier dreams of brotherhood.

The world is weary of its pain,
of selfish greed and fruitless gain,
of tarnished honor, falsely strong,
and all its ancient deeds of wrong.

Hear thou the prayer thy servants pray
uprising from all lands today.
And, o'er vanquished powers of sin,
O bring thy great salvation in!

John Howard Bertram Masterman (1867-1933), 1922
