O Father, lift our souls above

Representative Text

O Father! lift our souls above,
Till we find rest in Thy dear love;
And still that Peace divine impart
Which sanctifies the inmost heart,
And makes each morn and setting sun
But bring us nearer to Thy throne.

May we our daily duties meet,
Tread sin each day beneath our feet,
And win that strength which doth Thy will
And seeth Thee, and so is still;
And fixed on Thy sustaining arm,
Find daily food and know no harm.

Help us with man in peace to live,
Our brother’s wrong in love forgive,
And day and night the tempter flee
Through strength which comes alone from Thee!
Thus will our spirits find their rest,
In Thy deep Peace forever blest.
