Loving Fa­ther, Lord of all,
Thou dost hear us when we call,
And dost help us when we fall,
Thou dost love us ev­er.
Lead us in­to what is best,
Keep us in Thy fa­vor blest,
Till we reach Thy heav’n­ly rest,
And are with Thee ev­er.

Savior, Thou for us didst die,
Thou dost plead for us on high,
Thou dost hear our faint­est sigh,
Thou dost love us ev­er.
From all con­dem­na­tion free,
Draw us that we fol­low Thee,
Till at last Thy face we see,
And are with Thee ev­er.

Comforter and source of light,
Giving morn­ing for our night,
Thou didst make our hearts con­trite,
Thou dost love us ev­er.
Teach us, Spir­it, how to pray,
Cheer us ev­er on our way,
Sanctify us day by day,
Yea, be with us ev­er.
