THOU, God, the only God,
Father of all!
Thou gladly hearest us
If we but call.
When sin controls with power,
When fears our hopes devour,
In sorrow's chastening hour,
Be Thou e'er nigh.

Oft we forget Thy love,
O God most kind!
Oft we neglect Thy law,
Light to the blind.
Our every joy is Thine,
Gift of Thy grace divine,
Long let Thy mercy shine
On us below.

Thou Master of all worlds,
Of all adored!
Aid us to do Thy will,
Eternal Lord!
Let not Thy love depart,
Enter the prayerful heart,
With wrong we then shall part
For evermore.

Where'er Thou leadest us,
O Thou most High!
Humbly we follow Thee,
To do or die.
Should'st Thou our path make bright,
Should'st Thou afflict with blight,
Yet both by day and night
We trust in Thee.
