Representative Text

1 Father! thy children see,
Give ear unto our prayer;
Let our thanks rise to thee, to thee,
Upon the grateful air.

2 We come while yet the flower
Of life but half is blown;
To pray its opening, opening hour,
May bloom for thee alone.

3 The dew is on the leaf,
We lay it on thy shrine;
O, that the fragrant, fragrant breath,
Of the sweet rose be thine!

4 O, guard it by thy care,
That as the day draws on,
No spot nor stain may mar, may mar
The purity of morn!

5 O, not upon its bud
Be mercy poured in vain;
But may thy blessed, blessed word
Fall like the gentle rain!
