Eternal Father


Eternal Father, loving God... Considerate and good... Bestow
Your blessing on each soul... And every neighborhood... Give
us the strength we need- let not... Our efforts be in vain... Help
us to reach each worthy goal... We struggle to attain... Forgive
our weakness and our sins... As we fall by the way... And give
us courage to arise... And live a better day... Eternal Father,
source of life... Our faith we now renew... All that we are and
all we have... Are special gifts from You... We praise You and
adore You and... We kneel before Your throne...Eternal God,
without Whose grace... Man would be all alone.
