1 Heav’nly Father, we adore Thee,
And Thy gracious name we praise;
Take, O take our hearts, we pray Thee,
While our songs to Thee we raise.
When to Heaven we ascend,
We Thy praises ne’er shall end;
We will sing redeeming love
With the shining host above.
2 Gentle Shepherd, be Thou near us,
While we journey here below.
Guide our footsteps with Thy mercy,
Show us all the way to go. [Refrain]
3 Keep, O keep us from all evil,
May we each from sin be free,
Guide us safely on our journey,
Till in Heav’n Thy face we see. [Refrain]
4 Then with angels we’ll adore Thee,
High our voices then we’ll raise
With the blood washed throng in glory,
Sing aloud Thy glorious praise. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #14081
