Even before we call on Your name
To ask you, O God,
When we seek for the words to glorify You
You hear our prayer;
Unceasing Love, O unceasing Love
Surpassing all we know.
Glory to the Father;
And to the Son,
And to the Holy Spirit.
Even with darkness sealing us in
We breathe Your name,
And through all the days that follow so fast
We trust in You;
Endless Your grace, O endless Your grace
Beyond all mortal dream.
Both now and for ever,
And unto ages and ages,
---Michael Dennis Browne (from the opera The Three Hermits)
