Hymn/Song Information

Father before Thy throne my soul would




Father, before Thy throne
My soul would bow;
Ne’er have I asked in vain,
Oh, hear me now:
Hear Thou the prayer I make,
Answer for Jesus’ sake;
Bid faith and love awake
Within my heart.


Father, this heart of mine,
Which now I bring,
Lies down before Thy feet,
A guilty thing;
Kindle its altar fire,
Then hope and zeal inspire;
Wake Thou its silent lyre
In praise to Thee.


Thou art our dwelling-place
In every age;
In Thy sweet love we trace
Our heritage—
Our refuge from the storm,
Our shelter safe and warm;
Help us our vows perform,
Father Divine.
