Child of Thine 567

Tune: Arranged by Bascom Franklin Faust, 1927
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1907
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Father, I wait before Thy throne,
Call me a child of Thine,
Send down the Spirit of Thy Son,
To form my heart divine.

Then shed Thy promised love abroad,
And make my comfort strong.
Then shall I say my Father God,
With an unwav’ring tongue.
Bascom Franklin Faust, mayor of Ozark, Alabama, from 1937 to 1940, created this major companion to Grantville on page 423.
