Father, Cheer Our Souls Tonight

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 231

1. Father, cheer our souls tonight; Lift our burdens, make them light. Let thine all-pervading love Shine upon us from above.

2. Calm the surges of the soul; Bid the dark waves backward roll. Let us all thy mercies feel Thru the pow’r thou dost reveal.

3. Bless our loved ones far away; Grant them health and peace, we pray. In their hearts let holy light Beam to guide their steps aright.

4. Let implicit faith and trust Help us know thy ways are just. May thine ever-tender love Lead our hearts to thee above.
