God, Our Father, Just and Wise — Don Fortner
(Tune: #233 — Depth of Mercy — 77.77)
God our Father, just and wise,
Reigns enthroned above the skies!
Yet, He stoops mercy to show
To His children here below.
And He makes His children wise,
Teaching us His will to prize,
By His Spirit’s grace and pow’r
In each dark and trying hour.
To His friends Christ will reveal
The secrets of His good will.
When we leave this world of woe,
To glory with Him we’ll go!
Leaning on our Savior’s breast,
In that land of perfect rest,
All the wonders of His love
We’ll adore in heav’n above!
