1 Father, again in Jesus' Name we meet,
And bow in penitence beneath Thy feet:
Again to Thee our feeble voices raise,
To sue for mercy, and to sing Thy praise.
2 O we would bless Thee for Thy ceaseless care,
And all Thy works from day to day declare:
Is not our life with hourly mercies crowned?
Does not Thine arm encircle us around?
3 Alas, unworthy of Thy boundless love,
Too oft with careless feet from Thee we rove;
But now, encouraged by Thy voice, we come,
Returning sinners to a Father's home.
4 O by that Name in whom all fullness dwells,
O by that love which every love excels,
O by that blood so freely shed for sin,
Open blest mercy's gate, and take us in.

Father, again in Jesus’ Name we meet. Lady Lucy E. G. Whitmore. [Lent Evening.] First published in her Family Prayers, &c, 1824, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines, as No. 8 of the 14 hymns appended thereto. It is based on St. Luke xv. 20. In 1833 Bickersteth gave it, with slight alteration, in his Christian Psalmody, No. 584. This was repeated by several editors as the original text. In the Rev. F. Pott's Hymns, &c, 1861; the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Church Hymns, 1871, and others, stanza ii. is omitted. It is a hymn of more than usual merit, and is in extensive use in Great Britain. In America it is also found in a few collections, including Laudes Domini, 1884. In Windle it is attributed in error to "White." Original text in Hymnal Companion No. 14.
