1 My Father, God! how sweet the sound,
How tender and how dear!
Not all the melody of heaven
Could so delight the ear.
2 Come, sacred Spirit, seal the name
On my expanding heart,
And show that in Jehovah's grace
I share a filial part.
3 Cheered by a signal so divine,
Unwavering I believe;
My spirit, Abba, Father, cries,
Nor can the sign deceive.
