82b. My Father, God, to Thee

1 My Father, God, to thee,
On reverent bended knee,
To thee I bow;
To thee my prayer I raise,
To thee my psalm of praise,
In thine unbounded grace,
Oh, hear me now!

2 Weary and weak I come,
Still seeking through the gloom
To see thy face;
O Father, hear my plea,
And take me nearer thee,
And let thy bosom be
My resting place.

3 My path is wrapt in cloud,
This world is cold and proud,
And shadows come;
But yet I trust in thee,
That o'er life's troubled sea,
To where the mansions be,
Thou'lt lead me home.
