LUCIS CREATOR (L.M.)

1. Thou One in all, thou All in One,
Source of the grace that crowns our days,
for all thy gifts 'neath cloud or sun,
we lift to thee our grate-ful praise.

2. We bless thee for the life that flows,
a pulse in ev-ery grain of sand,
a beau-ty in the blush-ing rose,
a thought and deed in brain and hand.

3. For life that thou hast made a joy,
for strength to make our lives like thine,
for du-ties that our hands em-ploy,
we bring our of-ferings to thy shrine.

4. Be thine to give and ours to own
the truth that sets thy chil-dren free,
the law that points us to thy throne,
the love that makes us one with thee.

Alternate "You" Lyrics

1. Great One in all, Great All in One,
Source of the grace that crowns our days,
for all your gifts 'neath cloud or sun,
we lift to you our grate-ful praise.

2. We bless you for the life that flows,
a pulse in ev-ery grain of sand,
a beau-ty in the blush-ing rose,
a thought and deed in brain and hand.

3. For life that you have made a joy,
for strength to make our lives di-vine,
for du-ties that our hands em-ploy,
we bring our of-ferings to your shrine.

4. Be yours to give and ours to own,
the truth that sets your chil-dren free,
the law that points us to your throne,
the quest for you that makes love be.
