Hymn Selection

25

C.M.


1
FATHER, Thy name our souls would bless,
As children taught by grace,
Lift up our hearts in righteousness
And joy before Thy face.
2
Sweet is the confidence Thou giv'st,
Though high above our praise;
Our hearts resort to where Thou liv'st
In heav'n's unclouded rays.
3
There in the purpose of Thy love
Our place is now prepared,
As sons with Him who is above,
Who all our sorrows shared.
4
Absent as yet, we rest in hope,
Treading the desert path,
Waiting for Him who takes us up
Beyond the power of death.
5
O Holy Father, keep us here
In that blest Name of love
Walking before Thee without fear,
Till all be joy above.

J.N. Darby
