Hymn/Song Information

The sovereign Father good and kind Wants




The sov'reign Father, good and kind,
Wants but to have his child resign'd:
Wants but the yielding heart, no more—
With his rich gifts of grace to store.


He to thy soul no anguish brings;
From thine own stubborn will it springs;
That foe subdue, the foe within—
Then shall thy peace and joy begin.


Let faith exert its conqu'ring pow'r.
Say, in thy fearing, trembling hour,
"Father!—thy pitying help impart"—
'Tis done—a sigh can reach his heart.


But if corruption's strength prevail,
And if thy pilgrim footsteps fail;
Lift for his grace thy louder cries.
So shalt thou cleans'd, and stronger rise.
