  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.
  2. 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.
  3. Neither life nor death shall ever
    From the Lord His children sever;
    Unto them His grace He showeth,
    And their sorrows all He knoweth.
  4. Praise the Lord in joyful numbers:
    Your Protector never slumbers;
    At the will of your Defender
    Every foeman must surrender.
  5. Though He giveth or He taketh,
    God His children ne’er forsaketh;
    His the loving purpose solely
    To preserve them pure and holy.
