You Sustain Us with Your Fatherly Kindness

wilhelm_loeheGlory to you, O God most holy!
Glory to you, O God most high!
Glory to you, O King of heaven and earth!
You sustain us with your fatherly kindness.
Fill us with joy and gladness in the Holy Spirit,
that we may be blameless in your sight
through Jesus Christ our Lord
on the day when you reward each according to his deeds.

Also found in The Lutheran Hymnal, p. 106 #45

The repeated doxologies suggest that Löhe may have obtained this prayer from an Eastern Orthodox source.
