Thou who hast called our being here,
And given us souls to save,
Who taught us more of love than fear,
Of Heaven than of the grave—

To Thee in every mortal hour
With confidence we turn,
And feeling Thine abiding power,
Our hearts with rapture burn.

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done,
May all Thy children say,
And thank Thee, Father, for Thy Son,
Who taught us how to pray.
