1
HOLY Father, in Thy mercy
Hear our earnest prayer;
Keep us now, and all Thy children,
'Neath Thy care.
2
Jesus, Saviour, let Thy presence
Be our light and guide;
Keep, O keep us, in our weakness,
At Thy side!
3
May the joy of Thy salvation
Be our strength and stay;
May we love and serve and praise Thee
Day by day.
4
Holy Spirit, let Thy teaching
Sanctify our life;
Grant Thy grace that we may conquer
In Thy strife.
5
Father, Son and Holy Spirit -
God eternally -
Bless us, guide us, save us, keep us
Near to Thee!

Miss. I. Stevenson* (1843-1890)
