Holy Fa­ther, hear my cry;
Holy Sav­ior, bend Thine ear;
Holy Spir­it, come Thou nigh;
Father, Sav­ior, Spir­it, hear.

Father, save me from my sin;
Savior, I Thy mer­cy crave;
Gracious Spir­it, make me clean:
Father, Sav­ior, Spir­it, save.

Father, let me taste Thy love;
Savior, fill my soul with peace;
Spirit, come my heart to move:
Father, Son, and Spir­it, bless.

Father, Son, and Spir­it—Thou
One Je­ho­vah, shed abroad
All Thy grace with­in me now;
Be my Fa­ther and my God.
