Treasure Island

Augustus Montague Toplady

(4 November 1740–11 August 1778 / Surrey, England)

Father of Love, to Thee I Bend


Father of love, to thee I bend
My heart, and lift mine eyes;
O let my pray'r and praise ascend
As odours to the skies.

Thy pard'ning voice I come to hear,
To know thee as thou art:
Thy ministers can reach the ear,
But thou must touch the heart.

O stamp me in thy heav'nly mould,
And grant thy word appl'd
May bring forth fruit an hundred fold
And speak me justify'd.

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
