To Thee, O gracious Lord, we sing,
To Thee in faith we pray,
And all our sins to Thee we bring;
Lord, wash them all away.
We glory in Thy boundless love,
We triumph by Thy grace;
When shall we come to Heav’n above,
To see Thee face to face?
This barren wilderness is long,
O, be Thou with us, Lord,
And by Thy Spirit make us strong,
And guide us by Thy Word.
Thy holy love, O spread abroad
In these soiled hearts of ours,
That we may consecrate to God
Our bodies and our powers.
When comes the time to fall asleep,
Thou Morning Star, we pray,
Conduct us safe across the deep
In Thy own blessèd way.
