"Holy Father, in Thy Mercy"
by Isabella S. Stephenson, 1843-1890
THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
(St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)
1. Holy Father, in Thy mercy
Hear our anxious prayer;
Keep our loved ones who are absent
'Neath Thy care.
2. Jesus, Savior, let Thy presence
Be their light and guide;
Keep, oh, keep them in their weakness
At Thy side.
3. When in sorrow, when in danger,
When in loneliness,
In Thy love look down and comfort
4. May the joy of Thy salvation
Be their strength and stay!
May they love and may they praise Thee
Day by day!
5. Holy Spirit, let Thy teaching
Sanctify their life;
Send Thy grace that they may conquer
In the strife.
6. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
God the One in Three,
Bless them, guide them, save them, keep them,
Near to Thee.
