1. Our Father, we ascribe to You The worship You alone are due, And from our low estate we raise Our true and reverential praise.
Refrain: Great God we are Your chosen race, A people rescued by Your grace, A holy priesthood ever true– The church redeemed and built by You!
2. We meekly own our desp’rate need And for Your mercies, Lord, we plead; Before Your throne with fervent cries We seek the help Your grace supplies.
3. We ask You to unite us, Lord, That we might live in one accord. Fulfill the pray’r of Christ Your Son And knit the many into one.
4. We join You on Your sov’reign search For worshipers to fill Your church. So give us courage, Lord, to claim Disciples who will spread your fame.
