Hymn 332Play music
1 Father, whose depth of love unknown
Has brought these suppliants unto Thee,
They come to lay their burden down,
And be in Jesus Christ made free.
2 The word of life has touched their hearts,
And filled them with its light and hope:
Blest with the wisdom it imparts,
No longer they in darkness grope.
3 Oh, cleanse them in his precious blood;
Remember, Lord, their sins no more;
And in his righteousness renewed,
Help them to keep their raiment pure.
4 Where'er may lie their pilgrim way,
Mid joy or sorrow, praise or shame;
In life, or death's dark hour, may they
In all things glorify Thy name.
