Representative Text

1 When on the weary heart there gently dawns
The fullness of His love,
Then with our spirits tuned to joy and praise,
We sing, "God rules above!"

How He loves us, the notes come ringing,
From all the faithful, His mercy singing;
The whole earth to Him is bringing
Praises for His love and care.

3 Safe in the shadow of His mighty wings,
He hides us day by day;
In that sweet shelter we may sweetly gain
Courage to tread life’s way. [Refrain]

4 And when we each shall enter death’s dark vale,
Our earthly race well run,
He’ll grant us faith and courage still to say,
"Dear Lord, Thy will be done." [Refrain]
