A Fa­ther’s Pray­er Scott Wer­de­baugh, 1992 (🔊 pdf nwc).

O Lord, I humbly come to You
With this my earnest plea:
Lord, help me to become the man
That You would have me be.
Purge me from sin, cleanse me within;
And fill my life with You, O Lord,
Your love and pow’r to know.
Help me each day, along life’s way,
To keep You first in all I do,
And by Your grace, to grow.

O God, my Father, full of love,
Your grace abounds to me.
Lord, through my life may You alone
Be all my children see.
Purge us from sin, cleanse us within;
And fill our lives with You, O Lord,
Your love and pow’r to know.
Help us each day, along life’s way,
To keep You first in all we do,
And by Your grace, to grow.

And Lord, when all our days are done,
When life on earth is through,
We then will know life’s greatest joy:
Eternal life with You.
There we shall sing, loud anthems ring;
And as we gather ’round Your throne,
We’ll praise our Lord and King:
Thanks be to God! Praise Him alone!
But until then, O Lord, we pray,
To You the lost we’ll bring.
