1 Father of all! eternal mind!
Immensely good and great!
Thy children, form'd and bless'd by thee,
Approach thy heav'nly seat.

2 Thy name in hallow'd strains be sung:
We join the solemn praise;
To thy great name, with heart and tongue,
Our cheerful homage raise.

3 Thy mild, thy wise, and righteous reign,
Let ev'ry being own:
And in our minds, thy work divine,
Erect thy gracious throne.

4 As angels in the heav'nly worlds
Thy bless'd commands fulfil;
So may thy creatures here below
Perform thy holy will.

5 On thee we day by day, depend:
Our daily wants supply;
With truth and virtue feed our souls,
That they may never die.

6 Extend thy grace to ev'ry fault;
Oh! let thy love forgive.
Teach us divine forgiveness too,
Nor let resentments live.

7 Where tempting snares bestrew the way,
Permit us not to tread;
Or turn all real evil far
From our unguarded head.

8 Thy sacred name we would adore
With cheerful humble mind;
And praise thy goodness, pow'r and truth,
Eternal, unconfin'd!
