MY FATHER'S CARE




There's not a bird that wings its flight,
Nor lily blooms to ravish sight,
But in the song and perfume rare
An echo whispers, Father's care.

My Father's care, my Father's care,
Oh, blessed thought, without compare!
Those watchful eyes, that sparrows see.
Will ne'er forget a child like me.


There's not a blade of grass that springs,
Or feathered orchestra that sings,
But praises God, in earth and air,
For daily bread, for Father s care.

My Father's care, my Father's care,
Oh, blessed thought, without compare!
Those watchful eyes, that sparrows see.
Will ne'er forget a child like me.


There's not an eagle cleaves the sky.
With stalwart wing and flashing eye,
But from his fortress high in air
Re-echoes back, my Father's care.

My Father's care, my Father's care,
Oh, blessed thought, without compare!
Those watchful eyes, that sparrows see.
Will ne'er forget a child like me.


There's not a soul, however vile,
On whom the Saviour will not smile,
And now invites to gospel fare,
To grace bestowed, and Father's care.

My Father's care, my Father's care,
Oh, blessed thought, without compare!
Those watchful eyes, that sparrows see.
Will ne'er forget a child like me.


There's not a soul who's born of God,
Has peace and pardon through the blood,
But in the hour of dark despair
Finds comfort, joy, in Father's care.

My Father's care, my Father's care,
Oh, blessed thought, without compare!
Those watchful eyes, that sparrows see.
Will ne'er forget a child like me.


Speak forth, O flower, divinely clad,
And happy bird, with twitter glad,
And soul redeemed, boldly declare
We cannot doubt our Father's care.

My Father's care, my Father's care,
Oh, blessed thought, without compare!
Those watchful eyes, that sparrows see.
Will ne'er forget a child like me.
