Father, I Will Reverent Be

Reverently

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.
