1. To Thee, O Savior friend,
Our loving prayers ascend,
To Thee we sing.

And all we hold most dear
To Thee we bring.

Grows cold, and seems to be
A fleeting breath.
But Thine burns warm and pure
While earthly things endure:
A love forever sure
In life and death.

3. Dear Lord, our love renew,
That we with zeal may do
Thy holy will.
Support us when we fail,
Be near us when we call,
Direct and help us all
To serve Thee still.
