Hymn/Song Information

Father in heaven who lovest all




Father in heaven, Who lovest all,
O help Thy children when they call,
That they may build from age to age
An undefiled heritage.


Teach us to bear the yoke in youth,
With steadfastness and careful truth,
That, in our time, Thy grace may give
The truth whereby the nations live.


Teach us to rule ourselves alway,
Controlled and cleanly night and day,
That we may bring, if need arise,
No maimed or worthless sacrifice.


Teach us to look in all our ends,
On Thee for Judge,
and not our friends,
That we, with Thee,
may walk uncowed
By fear or favor of the crowd.


Teach us the strength
that cannot seek,
By deed or thought, to hurt the weak,
That, under Thee, we may possess
Manís strength
to comfort manís distress.


Teach us delight in simple things,
And mirth that has no bitter springs,
Forgiveness free of evil done,
And love to all men íneath the sun.
