                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. O God of Jacob, by whose hand
        Thy people still are fed;
        Who through this weary pilgrimage
        Hast all our fathers led,

        2. Our vows, our prayers, we now present
        Before Thy throne of grace;
        God of our fathers, be the God
        Of their succeeding race.

        3. Through each perplexing path of life
        Our wandering footsteps guide;
        Give us each day our daily bread
        And raiment fit provide.

        4. Oh, spread Thy covering wings around
        Till all our wanderings cease
        And at our Father's loved abode
        Our souls arrive in peace.

        5. Now with the humble voice of prayer
        Thy mercy we implore;
        Then with a grateful voice of praise
        Thy goodness we'll adore.
