Tune: Stanley Smith, 32069
Lyrics: Sunday School Hymn Book, 1827
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Almighty Father, heavínly King!
Who rules the world above;
Accept the tribute children bring,
Of gratitude and love.

To Thee, each morning, when we rise,
Our early vows we pay;
And ere the night hath closed our eyes,
We thank Thee for the day.

O Lord, extend Thy gracious hand,
To guide our erring youth;
And lead us to that blissful land,
Where dwells eternal truth.
