Representative Text

1 Father, as the day is closing,
Hear us as we humbly pray;
May we ne’er forget the blessings,
Showered on us, Lord, today.

Fill our hearts with songs of gladness,
Make our lives of use to Thee,
And when life’s long journey’s over,
Bring us safely, Lord, to Thee.

2 Father, Thou art e’er forgiving,
When we from Thee, erring, stray;
May we then forgive our brothers,
Who have wronged us by the way. [Refrain]

3 Father, there are poor hearts longing
For one word to soothe their pain;
May we seek them out, and bring them
Back to hope and peace again. [Refrain]

4 Father, bending round Thine altar,
Consecrate our lives to Thee;
Guard us with Thy holy angels,
Till our days shall ended be. [Refrain]
