God Our Father

A Hymn For Children

Blest are children who have taken

God to be their God and guide;

They shall never be forsaken,

In his keeping they abide.

He will be their God forever,

Watching o'er them all the day;

Nothing from his love can sever,

None can turn his love away.

"Come to me," the invitation

Free, he offers to us all;

" Come, partake my full salvation,

Hear your heavenly Father's call."

God of mercy, take us to thee,

Guide our hearts to seek thy grace;

May we as our Father view thee,

Grant us all the children's place.

Through this world while here we wander,

Till we reach our home and thee,

In the world of glory yonder,

Our eternal Father be.
