Hymn/Song Information

Lowly and solemn be Thy children's cry to Thee




Lowly and solemn be
Thy children’s cry to Thee.
Father divine!
A hymn of suppliant breath,
|: Owning that life and death :|
Alike are Thine.


O Father, in that hour
When earth all helping power
Shall disavow;
When spear, and shield, and crown,
|: In faintness are cast down :|
Sustain us Thou!


By him who bowed to take
The death-cup for our sake,
The thorn, the rod;
From whom the last dismay
|: Was not to pass away, :|
Aid us, O God!


Trembling beside the grave,
We call on Thee to save,
Father divine!
Hear, hear our suppliant breath;
|: Keep us, in life and death, :|
Thine, only Thine!


---Alternative verses---


O Father, in that hour
When earth all succoring power
Shall disavow;
When spear, and shield, and crown,
|: In faintness are cast down :|
Sustain us Thou!


And now beside the grave,
We call on Thee to save,
Father divine!
Hear, hear our suppliant breath;
|: Keep us, in life and death, :|
Thine, only Thine!
