    Verse 1
    O God of Bethel, by whose hand
    Thy people still are fed;
    Who through this weary pilgrimage
    Hast all our fathers led.

    Our vows, our prayers, we now present
    Before Thy throne of grace;
    God of our fathers, be the God
    Of their succeeding race.

    Through each perplexing path of life
    Our wandering footsteps guide;
    Give us each day our daily bread;
    And raiment fit provide.

    O spread Thy covering wings around,
    Till all our wanderings cease,
    And at our Father's loved abode
    Our souls arrive in peace.

    Verse 5
    Such blessings from Thy gracious hand
    Our humble prayers implore;
    And Thou shalt be our chosen God,
    And portion evermore.
