God a Father. Jer. 31. 9; 2 Thess. 2. 16, 17

W. Gadsby    L.M.

1
God is a Father, just and wise,
And reigns enthroned above the skies;
Yet all his saints on earth shall know,
He condescends to dwell below.

2
He’ll make his sons and daughters wise,
And teach them all his ways to prize;
He’ll lead them forth with love and power,
And save them in a trying hour.

3
To them he will his secrets tell,
And save them from the power of hell;
And when they leave this world of woe,
He’ll take them all to glory too.
