548. Father, We Greet Thee

1 Father, we greet thee, God of love,
whose glory shines mirrored in the face of Jesus Christ,
who by his perfect life of love and labor,
and in his perfect death was sacrificed.

2 Father, we dare, by our great brother bidden,
take up the cross and humbly follow him;
send out thy light and t4uth that they may lead us;
show us the way amid the darkenss dim.

3 Here we present ourselves, our souls and bodies,
strengthened with bread, the food of ev'ry land,
ready to love and work, but yet confessing
lonely we cannot, by his grace we can.

4 Friends at his table, priests around his altar,
soldiers of Christ, disciples of thy Son,
Father, we stand, prepared to do thy bidding;
come, God's own kingdom, and God's will be done!
