When all bespeaks a Father’s love,

Oh, wherefore, fearful as the dove,

Should we in times of peril flee

To any refuge, Lord, but thee?

+++++

In vain the wicked bend their bow,

And seek to lay the righteous low;

Thou from thine everlasting throne

With watchful care regard’st thine own.

+++++

Thy voice shall seal the sinner’s fate;

Just vengeance shall his crimes await;

While the bright beams of grace divine

Shall on thy faithful servants shine.
