1 Father! Thy Paternal Care.
TUNE-See Kingsley's S. Choir, vol. 1, p. 84.
Has my guardian been and guide ;
Has Thy hand of love supplied ;
Left by hours and days gone by ;
Beaming from tuturity.
Every moon that shines serene;
Every evening's twilight scene ;
Every incense of Thy shrine;
And its fairest -all are Thine.
3 And for all,
my hymn shall rise
Turn unwearied — Righteous One!
There reposing all my care,
DR. JOHN BOWRING.
4 Oh may each day my heart improve,
Increase my faith, my hope, my love;
Song of Praise.
With heaven and earth and seas,
Ye holy throng
Begin the song.
In glorious order stand;
He spake the word,
To praise the Lord.
3 Virgins and youths, engage,
To sound His praise divine,
Their feebler voices join.
