Father all holy, bend we so lowly,
Glowing with love’s tender flame;
Father in Heaven, praises be given,
Hallowed forever Thy name.
Telling the story, spreading Thy glory,
Send forth Thy people, we pray,
Till every nation know Thy salvation,
Under Thy kingdom’s full sway.

Angels adore Thee, waiting before Thee,
Swift Thy commands to fulfill:
Grant us, we pray Thee, grace to obey Thee,
Choosing and serving Thy will.
Father, now lead us, day by day feed us,
Ever provide and defend;
Trespass confessing, seeking Thy blessing,
Pardon and peace without end.

From sin deliver, keep us forever,
Kingdom and glory are Thine;
Thine, too, the power, hear us this hour,
Father, our Father divine!
Jesus is pleading, still interceding,
For His redeemed ones again,
For His sake hear us, in His name cheer us,
He is the faithful Amen.
