Ancient Of Days
by J. Albert Jeffrey
Ancient of Days, who sittest throned in glory,
To Thee all knees are bent, all voices pray
Thy love has blessed the wide worldís wondrous story
With light and life since Edenís dawning day.
O Holy Father, Who hadst led Thy children
In all the ages, with the fire and cloud,
Through seas dry shod, through weary wastes bewildering
To Thee, in reverent love, our hearts are bowed.
O Holy Jesus, Prince of Peace and Savior,
To Thee we owe the peace that still prevails,
Stilling the rude wills of menís wild behavior,
And calming passionís fierce and stormy gales.
O Holy Ghost, the Lord and the Lifegiver,
Thine is the quickening power that gives increase
From Thee have flowed, as from a pleasant river,
Our plenty, wealth, prosperity and peace.
O Triune God, with heart and voice adoring,
Praise we the goodness that doth crown our days
Pray we that Thou wilt hear us, still imploring
Thy love and favor kept to us always.
