Representative Text

1 Father, before Thy throne
My soul would bow;
Ne'er have I asked in vain;
O hear me now;
Hear Thou the pray'r I make,
Answer for Jesus' sake;
Bid faith and love awake
Within my heart.

2 Father, this heart of mine,
Which now I bring,
Lies down before Thy feet,
A guilty thing;
Kindle it altar fire,
Thou hope and zeal inspire;
Wake Thou its silent lyre
In praise to Thee.

3 Thou art our dwelling place
In every age;
In Thy sweet love we trace
Our heritage--
Our refuge from the storm,
Our shelter safe and warm;
Help us our vows perform,
Father divine.
