GOD'S FATHERHOOD AND LOVE
106
2 Forever firm Thy justice stands,
As mountains their foundations keep; Wise are the wonders of Thy hands; Thy judgments are a mighty deep.
The sons of Adam in distress Fly to the shadow of Thy wing.
4 Life, like a fountain rich and free, Springs from the presence of my Lord,
3 My God, how excellent Thy grace,
Whence all our hope and comfort spring
And in Thy light our souls shall see The glories promised in Thy word.
Rev, Isaac Watts, 1719
107
2  Sun of our life, Thy quickening ray 4  Lord of all life, below, above,
Sheds on our path the glow of day;         Whose light is truth, whose warmth is love,
Star of our hope, Thy softened light        Before Thy ever-blazing throne
Cheers the long watches of the night.      We ask no luster of our own.
3  Our midnight is Thy smile withdrawn; 5 Grant us Thy truth to make us free, Our noontide is Thy gracious dawn;        And kindling hearts that burn for Thee, Our rainbow arch Thy mercy's sign; Till all Thy living altars claim
All, save the clouds of sin, are Thine. One holy light, one heavenly flame.
Oliver Wenpell Holmes, 1848
