Lyrics

Hear us, Heav’nly Father,
Thou whose gentle care
Tends the young and feeble,
Hear our simple prayer!
Hear our prayer!
Father, hear!

Pardon our offenses,
Guard us from all ill;
Make us, like true children,
Love Thy holy will.
Hear our prayer!
Father, hear!

Let not sin beguile us
From Thy paths to stay;
But with Thy great mercy
Keep us night and day.
Hear our prayer!
Father, hear!
