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!
