Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread
by Stephen Foster


Father of love,
Father above,
Send down thy blessing upon each head,
Shield us from pride
While we here bide,
Give us this day our daily bread,
Give us this day our daily bread.


Humbly we pray,
Humbly we say,
Words that our Lord and Redeemer said.
Trustful and weak,
Humbly we speak,
Give us this day our daily bread.
Give us this day our daily bread.


Make us resigned,
Patient of mind.
While to the throne of thy grace we're led
Make us content
With what is sent,
Give us this day our daily bread.
Give us this day our daily bread.


Sinful are we,
Thoughtless of thee,
While 'round our footsteps thy care is shed
Though we forget,
Watch o'er us yet,
Give us this day our daily bread.
Give us this day our daily bread.
