101 ~ Children of the Heavenly Father


Children of the heavenly Father Safely in His bossom gather; Nestling bird nor star in heaven Such a refuge e'er was given.


God His own doth tend and nourish, In His holy love they flourish; From all evil things He spares them, In His mighty arms He bears them.


Neither life nor death shall ever From the Lord His children sever; Unto them His grace He showeth, And their sorrows all He knoweth.


Praise the Lord in joyful numbers, Your Protector never slumbers; At the will of your Defender Every foeman must surrender.


Though He giveth or He taketh, God His children ne'er forsaketh; His the loving purpose solely To preserve them pure and holy.
