Temperance 506. Father, who on man dost shower

Quem Pastores Laudavere:

Folksong, 15th cent.

Percy Dearmer, 1906

Father, who on man dost shower

Gifts of plenty from thy dower,

To thy people give the power

All thy gifts to use aright.

Give pure happiness in leisure,

Temperance in every pleasure,

Holy use of earthly treasure,

Bodies clear and spirits bright.

Lift from this and every nation

All that brings us degradation;

Quell the forces of temptation;

Put thine enemies to flight.

Be with us, thy strength supplying,

That with energy undying,

Every foe of man defying,

We may rally to the fight.

Thou who art our Captain, ever

Lead us on to great endeavour;

May thy Church the world deliver,

Give us wisdom, courage, might.

Father, who hast sought and found us,

Son of God, whose love has bound us,

Holy Ghost, within us, round us,

Hear us, Godhead infinite.
