Father in Thy mysterious presence




Father, in Thy mysterious
presence kneeling,
Fain would our souls feel
all Thy kindling love;
For we are weak,
and need some deep revealing
Of trust and strength
and calmness from above.


Lord, we have wandered
forth through doubt and sorrow,
And Thou hast made
each step an onward one;
And we will ever trust
each unknown morrow;
Thou wilt sustain us
till its work is done.


In the heartís depths
a peace serene and holy
Abides, and when pain seems
to have her will,
Or we despair,ó
O, may that peace rise slowly,
Stronger than agony,
and we will be still!


Now, Father, now in
Thy dear presence kneeling,
Our spirits yearn to feel
Thy kindling love;
Now make us strong;
we need Thy deep revealing
Of trust and strength
and calmness from above.
