Father, Thy Name Our Souls Would Bless

by J.N. Darby


Tune: Barrow C.M.


1 FATHER, Thy name our souls would bless,
As children taught by grace,
Lift up our hearts in righteousness
And joy before Thy face.

2 Sweet is the confidence Thou giv'st,
Though high above our praise;
Our hearts resort to where Thou liv'st
In heaven's unclouded rays.

3 There in the purpose of Thy love
Our place is now prepared,
As sons with Him who is above,
Who all our sorrows shared.

4 Eternal ages shall declare
The riches of Thy grace,
To those who with Thy Son shall share
A son's eternal place.

5 Absent as yet, we rest in hope,
Treading the desert path,
Waiting for Him who takes us up
Beyond the power of death.

6 We joy in Thee, Thy holy love
Our endless portion is,
Like Thine own Son, with Him above,
In brightest heavenly bliss.

7 O Holy Father, keep us here
In that blest name of love,
Walking before Thee without fear
Till all be joy above.
