To Thee, O Savior Friend,

Our loving pray’rs ascend,

To Thee we sing.

Upon Thine altars here

Our choicest gifts appear,

And all we hold most dear

To Thee we bring.


Sometimes our love to Thee

Grows cold, and seems to be

A fleeting breath.

But Thine burns warm and pure

While earthly things endure:

A love forever sure

In life and death.


Dear Lord, our love renew

That we with zeal may do

Thy holy will.

Support us when we fall,

Be near us when we call,

Direct and help us all

To serve Thee still.
