Father In My Lifes Young Morning


Father! in my life’s young morning,
May thy word direct my way;
Let me heed each gracious warning,
Lest my feet should go astray;
Make me willing, make me willing,
All its precepts to obey;
Let me heed each gracious warning,
Lest my feet should go astray.

Father! gentle is thy teaching;
Be a docile spirit mine;
Ev’ry day thy grace beseeching,
Let thy loving kindness shine
Always on me, always on me,
And my heart be wholly thine.
Ev’ry day thy grace beseeching,
Let thy loving-kindness shine.

Father! let me never covet
Things of vanity and pride;
Teach me truth, and may I love it
Better than all else beside.
Blessed Bible! blessed Bible!
May it be my heavenward guide.
Teach me truth, and may I love it
Better than all else beside.
