Glorious and blessed God (Covenant hymn)

Glorious and blessèd God,

Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

You are mine and I am yours,

only by your grace.

 

Now your will, not mine, be done

in all things, as you determine

and, wherever I may go,

shield me by your grace.

 

When my life is as I choose:

filled with purpose, rich and peaceful,

or in dark and troubled times

hold me in your grace.

 

In this pilgrimage of faith

I would seek to serve your glory;

To be known as yours alone,

faithful by your grace.

 

In this moment, holy Lord,

may I be a sign of heaven;

bringing you my willing heart

- fill it with your grace.

 

So, no longer mine but yours,

here my life of faith lies open.

Freely bound to serve your cause,

captive to your grace
