Father and Friend Thy light Thy love




Father and Friend!
Thy light, Thy love,
Beaming through
all Thy works we see;
Thy glory gilds the heavens above,
And all the earth is full of Thee.


Thy voice we hear,
Thy presence feel,
While Thou, too pure
for mortal sight,
Involved in clouds, invisible,
Reignest the Lord
of life and light.


We know not in
what hallowed part
Of the wide heavens
Thy throne may be,
But this we know,
that where Thou art,
Strength, wisdom,
goodness dwell with Thee.


Thy children shall
not faint nor fear,
Sustained by
this exalted thought;
Since Thou, their God,
art everywhere,
They cannot be
where Thou art not!
