Let Angels Sing, A Prayer

O Fountain of all good, when Thou art present, evil cannot abide;
In Thy fellowship is fullness of joy, beneath Thy smile is peace of conscience.

Nothing exceeds Thy power, nothing is too great for Thee to do, nothing too good for Thee to give.

Infinite is Thy might, boundless Thy love,
Limitless Thy grace, glorious Thy saving name.

Let angels sing for
sinners repenting,
prodigals restored,
backsliders reclaimed,
Satan’s captives released,
blind eyes opened,
broken hearts bound up,
the despondent cheered,
the self-righteous stripped,
the formalist driven from a refuge of lies,
the ignorant enlightened,
and saints built up in their holy faith.

I ask great things of a great God.

Amen.
