1 Grant us, O our heavenly Father,
Now in these our early days,
Thee in all things to remember,
Thee to serve and Thee to praise.
2 Drawing nearer still and nearer,
May we close and closer cling
To our Lord and to His altar
There ourselves an off’ring bring.
3 Blest in joy, upheld in sorrow,
At our work as in his sight,
May His presence still be with us
As we do it with our might.
4 Serving Thee, our Heavenly Father,
From the dawn to setting sun,
Serving Thee in life’s young morning,
Till our work on earth is done.
5 Till the shadows of the evening
Shall forever pass away,
And the Resurrection morning
Kindle into perfect day.
