Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Indulgent Father, by whose care

Indulgent Father, by whose care

Tune: EVAN (Havergal)
Published in 65 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Indulgent Father! by whose care,
I've passed another day,
let me this night thy mercy share,
And teach me how to pray.

2 Show me my sins, and how to moan
My guilt before thy face;
Direct me, Lord, to Christ alone,
And save me by thy grace.

3 Speak to my conscience, speak thou peace,
Through his atoning blood;
And grant me, Lord, a full release
From sins' oppressive load.

4 Show me my wants, and let me crave
Nothing but what is right;
Help me, by faith, on thee to live,
Then change my faith to sight.

5 Open to me thy gracious ear,
Great God my wants supply;
confirm my hope, relieve my fear,
And bid my murmurings die.

6 Guide me through life's mysterious path,
Nor let me from thee stray;
Preserve my fleeting, mortal breath
Through each revolving day.

7 Let each returning night declare
The tokens of thy love;
And every hour thy grace prepare
My soul for joys above.

8 And when on earth I close mine eyes,
To sleep in death's embrace,
Let me to heaven and glory rise,
To enjoy thy smiling face.

The Hartford Selection of Hymns from the most approved authors, 1799
