Representative Text

1. Father in Heaven, hear us today;
Hallowed Thy name be; hear us, we pray!
O let Thy kingdom come, O let Thy will be done,
By all beneath the sun, as in the skies.

2. Father in Heaven, hear us today;
Hallowed Thy name be; hear us, we pray!
Giver of daily food, Fountain of truth and good,
Be all our hearts imbued with love like Thine.

3. Father in Heaven, hear us today;
Hallowed Thy name be; hear us, we pray!
Lead us in paths of light, save us from sin and blight,
King of all love and might, glorious for aye.

Ames, Charles Gordon. (Dorchester, Massachusetts, 1828-April 15, 1912, Boston, Massachusetts). He was ordained as a Baptist minister in 1849 and spent some years as a home missionary in Minnesota. In 1859, he joined the Unitarian denomination and served several churches, his last pastorate being with the Church of the Disciples, Boston. In 1905, he wrote a hymn for the dedication of the new edifice of that Society, beginning "With loving hearts and hands we rear," which is included in The New Hymn and Tune Book, 1914. A hymn beginning "Father in heaven, hear us today," is attributed to him in the Universalist Church Harmonies: Old and New, 1898, but is not found elsewhere. --Henry Wilder Foote, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
