1 O Father mine, to Thee
My fervent prayer ascends,
That Thou wilt take from me
Whate’er Thy love offends;
Though dear as my right hand to me,
I freely give it up for Thee.

2 From all I may not love
And be a child of Thine,
I from this moment turn,
Nor longer call it mine;
Thy love alone shall fill my soul,
And every tho't and wish control.

3 And when my hour has come,
And death’s cold waves appear,
Thy presence will sustain,
And banish every fear;
My soul from earth shall pass away,
And soar to realms of endless day.
