1469. Father, Lead Thy Little Children

1. Father, lead Thy little children
Very early to Thy throne;
We will have no gods before Thee;
Thou art God, and Thou alone.

Refrain
Lead, O lead Thy little children
Very early to Thy throne;
We will have no gods before Thee;
Thou art God, and Thou alone.

2. In the Bible Thou hast taught us
All our thoughts to Thee are known;
Thou canst see us in the darkness;
Thou art God, and Thou alone. [Refrain]

3. Though the heathen bow to idols,
They have made of wood and stone,
We have Christian friends to tell us
Thou art God, and Thou alone. [Refrain]

4. Thou dost give us all our comforts,
Everything we call our own
Comes from Thee, our heav’nly Father;
Thou art God, and Thou alone. [Refrain]
