A Hymn for Ordinary Time
by Chaplain Mike</em

Here is a wonderful hymn that would be appropriate for devotional and group use throughout Ordinary Time. It is sung to the tune many know as, “Be Thou My Vision.”

Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy
Whose trust, ever childlike, no cares could destroy
Be there at our waking, and give us, we pray
Your bliss in our hearts, Lord, at the break of the day

Lord of all eagerness, Lord of all faith
Whose strong hands were skilled at the plane and the lathe
Be there at our labors, and give us, we pray
Your strength in our hearts, Lord, at the noon of the day

Lord all all kindliness, Lord of all grace
Your hands swift to welcome, your arms to embrace
Be there at our homing, and give us, we pray
Your love in our hearts, Lord, at the eve of the day

Lord of all gentleness, Lord of all calm
Whose voice is contentment, whose presence is balm
Be there at our sleeping, and give us, we pray
Your peace in our hearts, Lord, at the end of the day.
