Of thee some faint reflected ray,
They, wond'ring, to their Father rise:
His pow'r, how vast! his thoughts, how wise!

3 O may we live before thy face
Th' obedient children of thy grace,
And thro' each path of duty move
With filial awe and filial love.

4 Call us away from flesh and sense;
Thy sov'reign hand can draw us thence;
We would obey the voice divine,
And all inferior joys resign.
