1 Seeking Thy favor, Lord we come to Thee,
Thy throne addressing, Thy dear face to see,
Great are the blessings sent to us today,
Thou who hast sent them all, to Thee we pray.
Guide us, in each earthly task begun,
Guide us till the long day’s work is done.
2 We who adore Thee, ask Thy presence here,
Kneeling before Thee in our pray’r sincere,
Care for the absent, guide the young and small,
Teach Thy divine decrees to one and all. [Refrain]
3 Here at Thine altar give us strength today,
May we not falter not from duty stray,
Make us good soldiers in a righteous strife,
Serving with rev’rent hearts, our King for life. [Refrain]
