Almighty Father, heav’nly King!
Who rul’st the world above,
Accept the tribute children bring
Of gratitude and love.
To Thee, each morning, when we rise,
Our early vows we’ll pay;
And ere the night hath closed our eyes,
We thank Thee for the day.
Our Savior, ever good and kind,
To us His Word has given;
That children, such as we, may find
A certain path to Heaven.
Stretch out, O Lord, Thy gracious hand,
To guide our erring youth;
And lead us to that blissful land
Where dwells eternal truth.
