Representative Text

1 We praise Thy name, O Father,
Creator, Lord, and friend;
Thy mighty hand that made us,
Will keep and will defend.

Refrain:
O God, our heav’nly Father,
Thy children look to Thee;
Thy hand is strong and tender,
Thy love is full and free.

2 No tiny bird or blossom
Can live without Thy care;
Thy little ones are dearer,
And Thou wilt hear their prayer. [Refrain]

3 Thy loving heart will pity,
Thy wondrous grace will save,
Because Thy son, our Savior,
His life for sinners gave. [Refrain]

4 Thou knowest how to give us
The very things we need;
Thy trusting little children
Are safe, and blest, indeed. [Refrain]
