1 The tender love a father has
for all his children dear--
such love the Lord bestows on those
who worship him in fear.

2 The Lord remembers we are dust,
and all our frailty knows;
our life is like the tender grass,
and as the flower it grows.

3 The flower is withered by the wind
that smites with blighting breath;
so we are quickly swept away
before the blast of death.

4 Unchanging is the love of God,
from age to age the same,
displayed to all who do his will
and reverence his name.

5 Those who his gracious covenant keep
the Lord will ever bless;
their children's children shall rejoice
to see his righteousness.
