     In this sanctuary

     As ye hark the prayers of 

     Father Solomon.

3.  Beneficent Father

     Harken to our prayers 

     We Thine children are here 

     Requesting of Thee

     Some in tribulations

     Some are un‐employed

     Some are desirous of blessings

     Some, Thee can not praise 

     Please hark, please hark Father 

     Hark to our requests,

     May our prayers often 

     Be confirmed we plead.

     Thine grace, please endow

     Saints of ages past

     Glorious crown they earned 

     Glorious crown for elders to earn 

     By Thine Holy Ghost

     Parents testifying

     Thee, Apostles praise 

     And all Evangelists 

     Shepherds, thee to praise.

5.  Thine blessings abundant 

     Be unto thine church 

     Unto the young and old

    And Queen Esther Band 

    Lientenants and all our mothers 

    And the coming folds

    Glory Band and fathers 

    Soliders of Christ Band 

    Blessings of Almighty

    On choir descend.  Amen
