Father Hear Thy Child

Father, hear Thy child
In Thy mercy mild.
Let Thy mighty hand uphold me
And Thy loving arms enfold me
In all toil and strife
Till the end of life.

Jesus, hear my prayer,
Shield me ev’ry where;
To Thy mercy I commend me,
Let Thy saving grace attend me,
Since Thy blood alone
Could for me atone.

Spirit from above,
Fill my heart with love.
Grant me faith in Christ’s salvation,
Planned before the world’s creation;
And my hope sustain
Till life’s crown I gain.
