For God’s Presence.
53

Father in heaven, to whom our hearts

Would lift themselves in prayer,

Drive from our souls each earthly thought,

And show Thy presence there.

Each moment of our lives renews

The mercies of the Lord;

Each moment is itself a gift

To bear us on to God.

Help us to break the galling chains

This world has round us thrown;

Each passion of our hearts subdue,

Each cherished sin disown.

O Father! kindle in our souls

A never-dying flame

Of holy love, of grateful trust,

In Thine almighty name.
