If you know when this hymn was writ­ten,


Father, lov­ing Fa­ther,
Hear Thy child­ren’s call;
With Thy love en­fold us,
And pro­tect us all.

From the dawn’s first glim­mer,
To the close of day
May we feel Thee near us
On our earth­ly way.

And from ev­en­ing pray­er time
Through the dark of night,
Let us rest in qui­et­ness
Until morn brings light.

Teach our tongues to praise Thee
In the hymns we sing;
Teach our hearts to love Thee
As our voic­es ring.
