Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

Holy Father, In Thy Mercy

Full Text

1 Holy Father, in Thy mercy
Hear our anxious prayer;
Keep our loved ones who are absent
'Neath Thy care.

2 Jesus, Savior, let Thy presence
Be their light and guide;
Keep, O keep them, in their weakness
At Thy side.

3 When in sorrow, when in danger,
When in loneliness,
In Thy love look down and comfort
Their distress.

4 May the joy of Thy salvation
Be their strength and stay!
May they love and may they praise Thee
Day by day!

5 Holy Spirit, let Thy teaching
Sanctify their life
Send Thy grace that they may conquer
In the strife.

6 Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
God the One in Three,
Bless them, guide them, save them, keep them,
Near to Thee.
