My Father, I Will Cry to Thee


My Father, I Will Cry to Thee

Submitted Music

1. When I go out into the world

To work among my flocks and fields,

For increase and a fruitful yield,

My Father, I will cry to thee.

 

2. When I return at each day’s end

To rest with family and friends,

My head I’ll bow, my knees I’ll bend—

My Father, I will cry to thee.

 

3. When adversaries stand and fight

To sever me from thy true light,

Though battles rage throughout the night,

My Father, I will cry to thee.

 

4. My whole life long, my soul I’ll bare

With heart drawn out in humble prayer

To ask thee for thy loving care:

My Father, I will cry to thee.
