1 Father, we come to thee, thy pardon seeking;
All of our guiltiness take thou away;
Be thou compassionate while we are speaking;
For thy forgiveness we earnestly pray.
2 Father, we come to thee: kindly receive us;
To thy sweet promises closely we cling.
We would thy children be: Father, believe us!
Only, our love to thy altar we bring.
3 Father, we come to thee: we were so lonely;
Far from thy shelt’ring fold found we no rest;
Now to abide with thee, trusting thee only,
Father, receive us, by sorrow opprest.
4 Father, we come to thee, fully believing;
And by thy tenderness, thy pard’ning love,
Blessings abundantly we are receiving,
Pardon on earth and a mansion above.
