1 Heavenly Father, Jesus taught us
Trustingly to call Thee ours;
Lovingly Thy mercy sought us
Early in life's tender hours.
Thou from Satan's realm hast sav'd us,
Hast adopted us Thine own;
In baptismal water lav'd us,
Given us a fadeless crown.
2 Heavenly Father, Jesus taught us
Thus to call Thee, in His name;
His enduring merits wrought us
Graciously this childhood's claim:
Then with 'Abba, Father!' come we,
Place us wholly in Thy care;
O, let naught e'er wrest us from Thee!
Heed and hear Thy children's prayer.
3 Heavenly Father, Jesus taught us
That, where Thou art, we shall be;
Hence the Holy Spirit brought us
Unto child-like faith in Thee.
In Thy house are mansions spacious,
For the many ransomed blest!
Take us then, O Father gracious!
There are home, sweet peace, and rest.
