Father all ho­ly, bend we so low­ly,
Glowing with love’s ten­der flame;
Father in Hea­ven, prais­es be given,
Hallowed for­ev­er Thy name.
Telling the story, spread­ing Thy glo­ry,
Send forth Thy peo­ple, we pray,
Till ev­ery na­tion know Thy sal­va­tion,
Under Thy king­dom’s full sway.

Angels ad­ore Thee, wait­ing be­fore Thee,
Swift Thy com­mands to ful­fill:
Grant us, we pray Thee, grace to ob­ey Thee,
Choosing and serv­ing Thy will.
Father, now lead us, day by day feed us,
Ever pro­vide and defend;
Trespass con­fess­ing, seek­ing Thy bless­ing,
Pardon and peace with­out end.

From sin de­li­ver, keep us for­ev­er,
Kingdom and glo­ry are Thine;
Thine, too, the pow­er, hear us this hour,
Father, our Fa­ther di­vine!
Jesus is plead­ing, still in­ter­ced­ing,
For His re­deemed ones again,
For His sake hear us, in His name cheer us,
He is the faith­ful Amen.
