1. Father, cheer our souls tonight;Lift our burdens, make them light.Let thine all-pervading loveShine upon us from above.
2. Calm the surges of the soul;Bid the dark waves backward roll.Let us all thy mercies feelThru the pow’r thou dost reveal.
3. Bless our loved ones far away;Grant them health and peace, we pray.In their hearts let holy lightBeam to guide their steps aright.
4. Let implicit faith and trustHelp us know thy ways are just.May thine ever-tender loveLead our hearts to thee above.
