Our Morning Offering – 14 February – Quinquagesima Sunday
We bless You, Father, Lord of Life
By The Benedictine Nuns of Stanbrook Abbey
We bless You, Father, Lord of Life,
To whom all living beings tend,
The source of holiness and grace,
Our first beginning and our end.
We give You thanks, Redeeming Christ,
Who bore our weight of sin and shame;
In dark defeat You conquered sin,
And death, by dying, overcame.
Come, Holy Spirit, searching fire,
Whose flame all evil burns away.
Come down to us with light and love,
In silence and in peace to stay.
We praise You, Trinity in One,
Sublime in majesty and might,
Who reign forever, Lord of all,
In splendour and unending light.
