GOD'S FATHERHOOD AND LOVE
108
2   O heavenly love, how precious still, In days of weariness and ill,
In nights of pain and helplessness, To heal, to comfort, and to bless!
3   O wide-embracing, wondrous love! We read Thee in the sky above, We read thee in the earth below,
In seas that swell, and streams that flow.
4  We read thee best in Him Who came To bear for us the cross of shame;
Sent by the Father from on high, Our life to live, our death to die.
5   We read Thy power to bless and save, E'en in the darkness of the grave; Still more in resurrection light,
We read the fulness of Thy might.
6   0 love of God, our shield and stay
Through all the perils of our way!
Eternal love, in thee we rest,
For ever safe, for ever blest.
Rev. Hokatius Bonak, 1S61
109
2   Chance and change are busy ever;
Man decays, and ages move; But His mercy waneth never: God is wisdom, God is love.
3   E'en the hour that darkest seemeth
Will His changeless goodness prove;
From the gloom His brightness streameth:]
God is wisdom, God is love. 4 He with earthly cares entwineth
Hope and comfort from above; Everywhere His glory shineth:
God is wisdom, God is love.
J. BoWRING, lS2
