Heavenly Father we adore thee at thy feet

Representative Text

1 Heavenly Father, we adore thee!
At thy feet we humbly bow,
Met to worship, Lord, before thee;
Grant us each a blessing now.

2 Thou art gracious, Lord, forgive us
Every wrong that we have done;
Let no spirit false deceive us;
Bid thy Spirit make us one.

3 In the the name of Christ, our Savior,
Draw our minds from worldly care;
Grant us each thy special favor,
Hear our earnest, fervent prayer.

4 Few in number, yet delighting
In the truth which makes us free—
May that truth, our hearts uniting,
Help us each to trust in thee.

5 Deign to hear our invitation,
"By thy Spirit with us meet";
Let the prayer of inspiration
Be with all our wants replete.
