Hear us, Heav’nly Fa­ther,
Thou whose gen­tle care

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!
