Theme: Morning and Opening Hymns
1. Father, we praise Thee, now the night is over; Active and watchful, stand we all before Thee; Singing, we offer prayer and meditation: Thus we adore Thee. 2. Monarch of all things, fit us for Thy mansions; Banish our weakness, health and wholeness sending; Bring us to heaven, where Thy saints united Joy without ending. 3. All holy Father, Son, and equal Spirit, Trinity blessed, send us Thy salvation; Thine is the glory, gleaming and resounding Through all creation.
