Tune: NUN DANKET ALL UND BRINGET EHR (Störl)
Published in 2 hymnals
1 Father of lights, eternal Lord,
To Thee be thanks and praise,
Who gavest us Thy Holy Word
To guide our earthly ways.
2 How gently in this precious Word
Thy Spirit speaks to mine!
O Father, there Thy voice is heard
By every child of Thine.
3 A pilgrim in this far-off land,
I in that light rejoice,
Wherein I see Thy guiding hand,
And hear Thy heavenly voice.
4 True faith in Thee and in Thy Word,
With deeds of Christian love,
And peace with heaven and earth, O Lord,
Shall me Thy servant prove.
5 In Thee our Father's will we praise,
Our Saviour we adore,
The same to-day and all our days,
Now and for evermore.
