Representative Text

1 Father of our feeble race,
Wise, beneficent, and kind!
Spread o'er nature's ample face,

At Thine altars when we bow?
Grateful loving hearts, the spring
Whence the kind affections flow:

3 Willing hands to lead the blind,
Bind the wounded, feed the poor;
Love, embracing all our kind;
Charity, with liberal store.

4 Teach us, O Thou heavenly King,
Thus to show our grateful mind;
Thus the accepted offering bring,
Love to Thee and all mankind.
