Lyrics

God almighty and all seeing!
Holy One, in whom we all
Live, and move, and have our being,
Hear us when on Thee we call;
Father, hear us,
As before Thy throne we fall.

Of all good art Thou the giver,
Weak and wandering ones are we;
Then forever, yea, forever,
In Thy presence we would be;
O, be near us,
That we wander not from Thee.
