Give us a glimpse of Your great works,
High and supreme of vast energy;
Making, preserving, tire-less,
Bringing to pass Your eternal decree,
Your works are perfect, true and just,
You before Whom we bow and trust.
Give us a sense of Your great being,
Mystery, wonder, awe and power;
Your plan fulfilled in everything,
Acting and being in every hour,
Our God who never tires nor sleeps,
Who ever works our souls to keep.
Give us a taste of Your great love,
In Jesus sent for us to die;
Chosen in Him that we might live,
Holy and pure and You glorify,
Conform us to Your Son’s likeness,
Perfect in us Your holiness.
(Tune: St. Catherine; Chrysostom; Stella; Eaton; 88. 88. 88)
