Representative Text

1 Saviour, listen to our prayer,
Poor and sinful though we are;
Guilt confessing,
Give Thy blessing,
Grant Thy loving care.

O God our Father, Christ our King,
Now to Thee our hearts we bring;
Keep them ever, Blessed Saviour,
Till in heav’n Thy love we sing.

2 Strength is Thine; we often stray
From the pure and holy way;
Wilt Thou guide us,
Walk beside us,
Nearer every day! [Refrain]

3 Then may we, when life is o’er,
Stand with Thee on yonder shore;
Freed from sinning,
Heaven winning,
Praising evermore. [Refrain]
