O Father, when the softened heart

O Father, when the softened heart

Representative Text

1 O Father, when the softened heart
Is lifted up in prayer to Thee,
When earthly thoughts awhile depart
And leave the mounting spirit free,

2 Then teach us that our love like Thine
O’er all the realms of earth should flow,
A shoreless stream, a flood divine,
No lines of race or hue should know;—

3 Not bound by party, caste, or creed,
All narrow realms of self above;
For whoso of our love hath need,
To him we owe the dues of love.

4 Into the circle lift us up
Of Thy divine beneficence,
And freely as Thou fill’st our cup
Freely may we to all dispense.
