151 - On This Day, The First of Days
1. On this day, the first of days,
God the Father's name we praise;
Who, creation's Lord and Spring;
Did the world from darkness bring.
2. On this day the eternal Son;
Over death His triumph won;
On this day the Spirit came;
With His gifts of living flame.
3. Father, who didst fashion me;
God like in His triumph won;
Fill us with that love divine,
And comfort our wills to Thine,
4. Word made flesh, all hail to Thee!
Thou from sin hast set us free;
And with Thee we die and rise,
Unto God in sacrifice;
5. Holy Spirit, you impart;
Gifts of love to every heart;
Give us light and grace we pray;
Fill our hearts this holy day.
6. God, the blessed, Three in One,
May thy holy will be done;
In Thy world our souls are free.
And we rest this day with thee.
