Father to Thee we look in all our sorrow




Father, to Thee we look
in all our sorrow,
Thou art the Fountain whence
our healing flows;
Dark though the night,
joy cometh with the morrow;
Safely they rest who on Thy love repose.


When fond hopes fail and skies
are dark before us,
When the vain cares that vex
our lives increase,
Comes with its calm the thought
that Thou art o’er us,
And we grow quiet,
folded in Thy peace.


Naught shall affright us,
on Thy goodness leaning;
Low in the heart faith singeth
still her song;
Chastened by pain we learn
life’s deeper meaning,
And in our weakness
Thou dost make us strong.


Patient, O heart, though
heavy be Thy sorrows;
Be not cast down, disquieted in vain;
Yet shalt thou praise Him,
when these darkened furrows,
Where now He plougheth,
wave with golden grain.
