Lyrics

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.
