Gracious Father, we entreat Thee

Gracious Father, we entreat Thee

Words: Anonymous
Tune: Cross of Jesus

Gracious Father, we entreat Thee
For a blessing rich and free;
On Thy children now united;
May they serve and follow Thee.

Grant them, Lord, Thy richest blessings;
May they each Thy presence know,
Shedding life and light and sunshine
On their pathway here below.

Grant them joy and peace and gladness;
Give them grace and power divine;
Guard their hearts from care and sadness;
Make them truly, wholly Thine.

Heirs through grace of life eternal,
While as strangers wandering here,
May their prayers ascend unhindered
To a gracious Father's ear.

May they, hand in hand together,
Tread in faith life's brief career;
Looking, longing, watching, waiting,
Till their Savior doth appear.
