Far from Thy heavenly care,
Lord, I have gone astray;
And all the wealth Thou gav'st to me,
Have cast away.
Now from a broken heart,
In penitence sincere,
I lift my prayer to Thee, O Lord;
In mercy hear;
And in Thy blest abode
Give me a servant's place,
That I, a son, may learn to own
A Father's grace.
Hymns of the Greek Church, 1900
