O Father Kindly Deign To Hear

O Father, kindly deign to hear
The thanks Thy children bring;
Help us with love and reverent fear
Thy lofty praise to sing.

And while before Thy throne we bow,
Come Thou to every heart:
From sin O purify us now;
Give us that better part.

Remove today the world’s wild din;
Our souls from evil save;
Help us life’s noblest crown to win;
Guide us beyond the grave.
