O Thou Kind and Gracious Father
1. O thou kind and gracious Father, Reigning in the heav’ns above, Look on us, thy humble children; Fill us with thy holy love. Fill us with thy holy love.
2. We have met this Sabbath morning, Words of life and truth to hear. Teach us how to ever serve thee And thy holy name revere, And thy holy name revere.
3. Help us to resist temptation; Help us to refrain from ill. Help us all to gain salvation; Help us all to do thy will. Help us all to do thy will.
