Lyrics:


Father of love,
Father above
Send down thy blessing on each head;
Shield us from pride,
While we here bide,
Give us this day our daily bread,
Give us this day our daily bread.

Humbly we pray,
Humbly we say
Words that our Lord and Redeemer said;
Trustful and weak
Humbly we speak,
Give us this day our daily bread,
Give us this day our daily bread.

Make us resigned,
Patient of mind
While to the throne of thy grace we're led;
Make us content
With what is sent,
Give us this day our daily bread,
Give us this day our daily bread.

Sinful are we,
Thoughtless of thee,
While round our footsteps thy care is shed;
Though we forget,
Watch o'er us yet
Give us this day our daily bread,
Give us this day our daily bread.
