10370. Holy Father, We Adore Thee

1 Holy Father, we adore Thee,
And all honor to Thee give,
For the blessings, without number,
Freely granted while we live.
In our youthful days Thy mercy,
Like a river calmly flows,
And in riper years ne’er failing,
As the solace of our woes.

2 Holy Father, Thou didst love us,
E’en while wandering far from Thee,
And didst send the blessèd Savior,
For a sacrifice to be.
In a manger low they laid Him,
’Mid the beasts within the stall;
Angels guarding the Redeemer,
Who salvation brought to all.

3 Holy Father, send Thy Spirit
Into every waiting heart,
And let all receive with favor
What will prove the better part;
While to Thee, with tuneful voices,
Sweetest praises we will sing,
Heav’n and earth, in one grand chorus,
Loudest hallelujahs ring.
