Hymn/Song Information

It is the Lord our Father's hand




It is the Lord our Savior's hand
Weakens our strength amidst the race;
Disease and death at his command
Arrest us, and cut short our days.


Spare us, O Lord, aloud we pray,
Nor let our sun go down at noon;
Thy years are one eternal day,
And must thy children die so soon?


Yet in the midst of death and grief
This thought our sorrow should assuage:
Our Father and our Savior live;
Christ is the same through every age.


'Twas he this earth's foundation laid;
Heav'n is the building of his hand;
This earth grows old,
these heav'ns shall fade
And all be changed at his command.


The starry curtains of the sky,
Like garments, shall be laid aside;
But still thy throne stands firm on high,
Thy church for ever must abide.


Before thy face thy church shall live,
And on thy throne thy children reign;
This dying world shall they survive,
And the dead saints be raised again.

It is the Lord our Father's hand
Weakens our strength amidst the race;
Disease and death at his command
Arrest us, and cut short our days.


It is the Lord our Father's hand
Impairs our strength amid the race;
Disease and death at his command
Arrest us, and cut short our days.


Yet in the midst of death and grief
This thought our sorrow should assuage:
Our Father and our Savior live;
God is the same through every age.


Yet in the midst of death and grief
This thought our sorrow should assuage:
Our Father and our Savior live;
Thou art the same through every age.


Before thy face thy church shall live,
And on thy throne thy children reign;
This dying world shall they survive,
And rise to glorious life again.
