Hymn 326
O Father, all creating

1 O Father, all creating, Whose wisdom, love, and power First bound two lives together In Edenís primal hour, Today to these Thy children Thine earliest gifts renew: A home by Thee made happy, A love by Thee kept true. 2 O Saviour, Guest most bounteous of old in Galilee, Vouchsafe to-day thy presence, With these who call on thee; Their store of earthly gladness, Transform to heavenly wine, And teach them in the tasting, To know the gift is Thine. 3 O Spirit of the Father, Breathe on them from above, So mighty in Thy pureness, So tender in Thy love That, guarded by Thy presence And kept from strife and sin, Their lives may own thy guidance Their hearts be ruled by thee. 4 Excerpt thou build it, Father, The house is built in vain; Excerpt thou, Savior, bless it, The joy will turn to pain. But nought can breaks a union Of hearts in thee made one; And love thy Spirit hallows Is endless love begun.
