At your feet, our God and Father
1 At your feet, our God and Father,
who has blessed us all our days,
we with grateful hearts would gather
to begin the year with praise -
praise for light so brightly shining
on our steps from heaven above,
praise for mercies daily twining
round us golden cords of love.
2 Jesus, for your love most tender
on the cross for sinners shown,
we would praise Thee and surrender
all our hearts to be Thine own:
with so blest a friend provided,
we upon our way would go,
sure of being safely guided,
guarded well from every foe.
3 Every day will be the brighter
when Thy gracious face we view;
every burden will be lighter
when we know it comes from you.
Spread Thy love's broad banner o'er us;
give us strength to serve and wait,
till the glory breaks before us
through the city's open gate.
