1 Hear my prayer; O hear and bless,
While my sins I now confess!
Let me hear that voice so mild,
Softly say, Thou art My child.

Hear my prayer; O Father, hear!
Safe am I if Thou art near;
More like Christ, my Saviour, make,
Hear me for Thy mercy’s sake.

2 Hear my prayer; O Father, hear!
Soothe my conscience, calm my fear;
Drive away each rising doubt,
Cast the evil spirit out. [Refrain]

3 Hear my prayer, and make me Thine;
May I know that Thou art mine;
Know I am from sin set free,
And each day grow more like Thee. [Refrain]
