Father, hear the prayer


    • Father, hear the prayer we offer: 
    • Not for ease that prayer shall be, 
    • But for strength, that we may ever 
    • Live our lives courageously. 

    • Not for ever in green pastures 
    • Do we ask our way to be: 
    • But by steep and rugged pathways 
    • Would we strive to climb to Thee. 

    • Not for ever by still waters 
    • Would we idly quiet stay; 
    • But would smite the living fountains 
    • From the rocks along our way. 

    • Be our strength in hours of weakness, 
    • In our wanderings be our Guide; 
    • Through endeavour, failure, danger, 
    • Father, be Thou at our side. 

    • Let our path be bright or dreary, 
    • Storm or sunshine be our share; 
    • May our souls, in hope unweary, 
    • Make Thy work our ceaseless prayer
