79R Father and Friend, Thy Light, Thy Love


1. Fath-er and Friend, thy light, thy love,
beam-ing through all thy works we see;
Thy glo-ry gilds the heavens a-bove,
and all the earth is full of thee.

2. Thy voice we hear, thy pre-sence feel,
while thou, too pure for mor-tal sight,
reign-est in clouds, in-vi-sib-le,
thou, La-dy of our life and light.

3. We know not in what hal-lowed part
of the wide heavens thy throne may be,
but this we know, that where thou art,
strength, wis-dom, good-ness dwell with thee.

4. Thy chil-dren shall not faint nor fear,
sus-tained by this ex-alt-ed thought;
Since thou, their God, art ev-ery-where,
they can-not be where thou art not!
