Representative Text

1 O Father, not for worldly wealth,
We pray to Thee today;
We only ask for faith to tread
The straight and narrow way.

2 God’s plans and purposes to us
May oft seem strange and dim,
But where we can not understand,
We trust it all to Him.

3 And of the hopes yet unfulfilled,
Help us to truly say,
The prayers that oft unanswered seem,
Are answered in His way.

4 O Father, make us wholly Thine;
Grant us Thy loving care;
And when life’s labor all is o’er,
May we Thy glory share.
