Full Text

1 Thou source of Life, O hear my pray’r,
For guidance thro’ each day;
May thy pure guiding angels keep
My feet in wisdom’s way.

Hear my pray’r, O hear my pray’r,
Guard and keep me in thy care;
Loving Father, hear my pray’r,
Hear, O hear my heartfelt pray’r!

2 Thou source of Light, O hear my prayer,
Send sunshine to my soul;
Be thou my guide on life’s dark sea
When billows round me roll. [Refrain]

3 Thou source of Love, O hear my prayer,
Let me not live in vain;
Teach me to place more trust in three,
Make all my duties plain. [Refrain]

4 Thou source of Truth, O hear my prayer,
That all mankind may know
Our lov’d ones can return to earth,
And bring sweet heav’n below. [Refrain]
