Father Of Lights Eternal Lord


Father of lights, eternal Lord,
To Thee be thanks and praise,
Who gavest us Thy Holy Word
To guide our earthly ways.

How gently in this precious Word
Thy Spirit speaks to mine!
O Father, there Thy voice is heard
By every child of Thine.

A pilgrim in this far-off land,
I in that light rejoice,
Wherein I see Thy guiding hand,
And hear Thy heavenly voice.

True faith in Thee and in Thy Word,
With deeds of Christian love,
And peace with heaven and earth, O Lord,
Shall me Thy servant prove.

In Thee our Father’s will we praise,
Our Saviour we adore,
The same to-day and all our days,
Now and for evermore.

Amen.
