Verse 1: Children of the heav’nly Father Safely in His bosom gather; Nestling bird nor star in heaven Such a refuge e’er was given.
Verse 2: Neither life nor death shall ever From the Lord His children sever; Unto them His grace He showeth, And their sorrows all He knoweth.
Verse 3: Though He giveth or He taketh, God His children ne’er forsaketh, His the loving purpose solely To preserve them pure and holy.
Verse 4: God His own doth tend and nourish; In His holy courts they flourish, From all evil things He spares them; In His mighty arms He bears them.
