Hymn/Song Information

There's not a bird with lonely nest In




There’s not a bird with lonely nest,
In pathless wood or mountain crest,
Nor meaner thing, which does not share,
O God, in Thy paternal care.


There’s not a being now accurst
Who did not taste thy goodness first;
And every joy the wicked see
Received its origin from thee.


Each barren crag, each desert rude,
Holds Thee within its solitude;
And Thou dost bless the wand’rer there,
Who makes his solitary prayer.


In busy mart and crowded street,
No less than in the still retreat,
Thou, Lord, art near, our souls to bless
With all a parent’s tenderness.


And every moment still doth bring
Thy blessings on its loaded wing;
Widely they spread through earth and sky,
And last to all eternity.


Through all creation let thy name
Be echoed with a glad acclaim;
That let the grateful churches sing
With that let heaven for ever ring:


And we, where’er our lot is cast,
While life, and thought, and feeling last,
Through all the years, in every place,
Will bless Thee for Thy boundless grace.
