1 Hear us, our Father! we know thou wilt hear us;
Nor need our voices ascend far away;
Thou art around us, beside us, within us;
Thou wilt attend when we earnestly pray.
2 Love us, our Father! we know thou wilt love us;
We are thy children, we turn unto thee;
For all around us, with us, above us,
Proofs of thine infinite kindness we see.
3 Aid us, our Father! we know thou wilt aid us;
We are so feeble, and thou art so strong;
Almighty Power that made us and keeps us,
Thou wilt protect us from danger and wrong.
4 Hear us, our Father! and help us and love us,
Till more and more of thyself we shall know,
Whether we go to the bright world above us,
Or stay to serve thee in homes here below.Source: Worship and Song. (Rev. ed.) #45
