Father, We Praise Thee, Now the Night is Over Lyrics
1 Father, we praise you, now the night is over,
active and watchful, standing now before you;
singing, we offer prayer and meditation:
thus we adore you.
2 Monarch of all things, fit us for your mansions;
banish our weakness, health and wholeness sending;
bring us to heaven, where your saints united
joy without ending.
3 All-holy Father, Son, and equal Spirit,
Trinity blessed, send us your salvation;
yours is the glory, gleaming and resounding
through all creation.
Father, We Praise Thee, Now the Night is Over Hymn Story
“Father, We Praise Thee, Now the Night is Over” is a Christian hymn that was originally written by Gregory the Great in Latin. It was translated into English by Percy Dearmer. Gregory the Great was a Catholic pope who was born about A.D. 540.
His interest was excited in the evangelization of Britain by seeing some beautiful children, natives of that country, exposed for sale in the slave-market in Rome (“non Angli, sed Angeli”).
He was elected as Pope in 590 and immediately realized his dream of promoting the evangelization of Britain.
