Representative Text

1 Father, we come in the morning,
Hailing the golden light,
Blessing Thy hand for the dawning,
Thanking Thee for the night.
Lord, let Thy goodness surround us,
Leading us all the day;
O, may the love that has found us
Through all our journey stay!

2 Hold Thou our hearts in Thy keeping,
Guide us, for Jesus’ sake;
Thou, who didst watch o’er us sleeping,
Care for us when we wake.
Father, O keep us from sinning!
Pardon our errors past!
Help Thou love’s feeble beginning,
Fit us for heav’n at last!
