736. Heavenly Father, Hear Thy Children

1 Heav'nly Father, hear Thy children,
As we come to Thee in prayer.
Help us always to remember
God is with us ev'rywhere.

God is with us! God is with us!
God is with us ev'rywhere.

2 Keep our hearts and minds from evil,
Help us walk in Jesus' way.
Make us loving, kind, and truthful,
Keep us safely night and day. [Chorus]
