Father We Look Up To Thee

Father! we look up to Thee;
Let us in Thy love agree;
Thou, who art the God of peace,
Bid contention ever cease.

Make us of one heart and mind,
Self-forgetful, true and kind;
Strong, yet meek in thought and word,
Like Thy Son, our blessed Lord.

Let us for each other care,
Each the other’s burden bear;
Ready, when reviled, to bless;
Studious of the law of peace.

Father! all our souls inspire,
Fill us with love’s sacred fire;
Guided by that blessed light,
Order all our steps aright.

Free from anger, free from pride,
Let us thus in Thee abide;
All the depths of love express,-
All the heights of holiness.
