To Thee we sing, our glorious king,
Do Thou, O Savior, hear us;
And as we bow before Thee now,
Oh, be Thou very near us.
The seed is sown, the seed is sown
In faith tho’ little knowing;
The seed is sown, the seed is sown,
Oh, care Thou for the growing.
What we have heard from out Thy Word,
Enrich it with Thy blessing;
Each wandering thought while Thou hast taught,
We come to Thee confessing.
Where’er we be, still close to Thee,
Oh, keep us, Thine for ever;
We would be true in all we do,
And lose Thy blessing never.
