Representative Text

1 God in heaven, hear our singing;
Only little ones are we,
Yet a great petition bringing,
Father, now we come to Thee.

2 Let Thy kingdom come, we pray Thee!
Let the world in Thee find rest;
Let all know Thee and obey Thee,
Loving, praising, blessing, blest!

3 Let the sweet and joyful story
Of the Saviour's wondrous love,
Wake on earth a song of glory,
Like the angel's song above.

4 Father, send the glorious hour.
Every heart be Thine alone!
For the kingdom and the power,
And the glory, are Thine own.

Amen.
