Gracious Savior, thus before Thee, With our varied want and care

Gracious Savior, thus before Thee, With our varied want and care

Author: Henry Bateman
Published in 10 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Gracious Saviour, thus before thee
With our varied want and care;
For a blessing we implore thee,
Listen to our evening prayer!

2 By thy favor safely living,
With a grateful heart we raise
Songs of jubilant thanksgiving;
Listen to our evening praise.

3 Through the day, Lord, thou hast given
Strength sufficient for our need;
Cheered us with sweet hopes of heaven,
Helped and comforted indeed.

4 Lord, we thank thee, and adore thee,
For the solace of thy love;
And rejoicing thus before thee,
Wait thy blessing from above!
