Invocation for service five in Gloria Patri

Father of Mercies, who alone canst bring the will and affections of man into harmony with Thine own: Grant unto Thy people that they may love whatever Thou commandest, and desire whatever Thou dost promise, that so, among the sundry and manifold changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found, though Jesus Christ our Lord.

  • From the Invocation in the Fifth Order of Public Worship in The Gospel Liturgy, “prepared by direction of the General Convention of Universalists” (New York: Henry Lyon, 1861) p. 41.
