O Father, our Father

Only one Father, in all the universe,
In all time and in the whole creation.
He is above all, through all,
And in it all, not only as Creation’s force and power,
But as its Initiator in love, the Father of love
Whose Fatherhood must never be denied,
For pain of denial is the deepest pain
Man’s spirit knows, can ever know.

(Geoffrey Bingham, O Father, our Father, p. xiii)
