Father, I Will Reverent Be

 

Lyrics

  1. Father, I will rev’rent be

    And in thy house walk quietly;

    Fold my arms and bow my head

    And close my eyes when prayers are said;

    Listen to the words I hear,

    For in thy house I feel thee near.

    May my thoughts more perfect be,

    That I may speak more rev’rently.

    Father, I will rev’rent be

    And in thy house walk quietly.
