Almighty Ruler, God of truth (Chambers)

Almighty ruler, God of truth,
who guid'st the changing scenes of day
with golden gleam illuming morn,
and kindling noon with fiery ray,

O quench the baneful flames of strife,
bid every hurtful passion cease,
vouchsafe unto our bodies health,
and keep our hearts in perfect peace.

Most gracious Father, grant our prayer,
and thou co-equal only Son,
with thee, Spirit Paraclete,
reign through eternal ages One.

(340-397); trans. John David Chambers (1805-1893), alt.
