Hymn/Song Information

Father who art alone Our Helper and




Father, Who art alone
Our Helper and our Stay;
O hear us! as we plead
For loved ones far away;
And shield with Thine almighty hand
Our wanderers by sea and land.


For Thou, our Father God,
Art present everywhere,
And bendest low Thine ear
To catch the faintest prayer,
Waiting rich blessings to bestow
On all Thy children here below.


O compass with Thy love
The daily path they tread!
And may Thy light and truth
Upon their hearts be shed;
That, one in all things with Thy will,
Heavínís peace and joy
their souls may fill.


Guard them from every harm
When dangers shall assail,
And teach them that Thy power
Can never, never fail;
We cannot with our loved ones be,
But trust them, Father, unto Thee.


We all are travellers here
Along lifeí various road,
Meeting and parting oft
Till we shall mount to God;
At home at last, with those we love,
Within the fatherland above.
