Hymn/Song Information

O Father when the softened heart Is lift




O Father, when the softened heart
Is lifted up in prayer to Thee,
When earthly thoughts awhile depart,
And leave the mounting spirit free :


Then teach us that our love, like Thine,
O'er all the realms of earth should flow,
A shoreless stream, a flood divine,
No lines of race or hue should know:


Not bound by party, caste, or creed,
All narrow realms of self above :
For whoso of our love hath need,
To him we owe the dues of love.


Into the circle lift us up
Of Thy divine beneficence :
And, freely as Thou fill our cup,
Freely may we to all dispense.
