Father, to us, thy children, humbly kneeling

Representative Text

Father, to us Thy children, humbly kneeling,
Conscious of weakness, ignorance, sin and shame,
Give such a force of holy thought and feeling,
That we may live to glorify Thy name:

That we may conquer base desire and passion
That we may rise from selfish thought and will,
O’ercome the world’s allurement, threat, and fashion,
Walk humbly, gently, leaning on Thee still.

Let all Thy goodness by our minds be seen,
Let all Thy mercy on our souls be sealed,
Lord, if Thou wilt, Thy power can make us clean,
O, speak the word! Thy servants shall be healed.
