Father, Help Your People Lyrics

1 Father, help your people in this world to build
something of your kingdom and to do your will.
Lead us to discover partnership in love;
bless our ways of sharing, and our pride remove.

2 Lord of desk and altar, bind our lives in one,
that in work and worship love may set the tone.
Give us grace to listen, clarity of speech;
make us truly thankful for the gifts of each.

3 Holy is the setting of each room and yard,
lecture hall and kitchen, office, shop, and ward.
Holy is the rhythm of our working hours;
hallow then our purpose, energy, and powers.

4 Strengthen, Lord, for service, hand and heart and brain;
help us good relations daily to maintain.
Let the living presence of the Servant-Christ
heighten our devotion, make our lives a feast.
