Version:

FATHER, WE HAVE SINNED
In word, and deed, and thought,
Through ignorance, through weakness,
Through deliberate fault.
We've sinned against our neighbors
And against You, Lord,
Yet we are truly sorry,
And we turn to You once more.

Father of the nations,
You who bless the poor,
We're servants of the endless want
And drive for more.
We've made our greed a virtue,
While the children starve,
Come, change our joy to sorrow,
'Till our lives reflect Your heart.

Keith Getty & Stuart Townend
