To Thee O God We Offer

To Thee, O God, we offer
Our joyful songs of praise;
To Thee, the bounteous Giver,
And Guardian of our days;
Again we meet to thank Thee,
To raise our evening prayer;
Our hearts are filled with gladness,
For Thy most tender care.

Guard Thou the young, we pray Thee,
From sin and error’s ways;
Show them the path of duty,
And guide through future days;
May youth and age so serve Thee,
Thou God of watchful love;
That they, when life is ended,
May dwell with Thee above.
