Father we bless the gentle care That




Father, we bless the gentle care
That watches o'er us day by day,
That guards us from the tempter's snare,
And guides us in the heavenward way:—
We bless Thee for all the tender love
That mingles all our hearts in one,—
The music of the soul;—above
'T is purer spirits' unison.


Father, 't is evening's solemn hour,
And cast we now our cares on Thee;
Darkly the storm may round us lower,
Peace is within,—Christ makes us free;—
And when life's toil and joy are o'er,
And evening gathers on its sky,
Our circle broke,—we sing no more,—
O, may we meet and sing on high.
