1 Father, Holy Father,
Now the sun has come
Bringing light and glory
From Thy Heav’nly Home.
We Thy little children
To Thy Throne above,
WE would hymn Thy praises,
We would sing Thy love.

2 Hear us, Holy Father,
AS to Thee we pray,
Asking Thee to keep us
Safe from harm today.
As the Saviour Jesus,
When a little child,
Gentle was, and holy,
Pure, and meek, and mild.

3 He shall be our copy;
We will try to be
Patient and obedient,
Loving, king, as He.
So, when night returneth,
Holier may we be,
Kept from sin and sorrow,
All the nearer Thee.
