God’s Fatherly Care.

Father! there is no change to live with Thee;

Save that in Christ I grow from day to day;

In each new word I hear, each thing I see,

I but rejoicing hasten on my way.

The morning comes, with blushes overspread,

And I, new-wakened, find a morn within;

And in its modest dawn around me shed,

Thou hear’st the prayer and the ascending hymn.

Hour follows hour, the lengthening shades descend;

Yet they could never reach as far as me.

Did not Thy love its kind protection lend,

That I, Thy child, might sleep in peace with Thee.
