Ash Wednesday to Pentecost

O Thou, Who At Thine Own Command

  1. O Thou who at Thine own command,
    The Son's relief, the Father's hand,
    Came to forge courage out of fear
    And make the Words of Jesus clear;
  2. Who filled the foundling Church with strength
    To go beyond all human length;
    Who Shed new light on what was old
    And built a kind but mighty fold;
  3. Bring to our lives and times a share
    Of what the infant Church could dare;
    May we be overwhelmed by love
    Brought down by Thee from heaven above.
