58: "ABBA, Father", words of mercyby Miss Catherine Helene von Poseck (1859-1953)
1 "ABBA, Father", words of mercy,
Words of comfort, words of love,
Covering all our needs and longings
Till we reach our home above!
2 Jesus prayed for us, O Father,
Ere He left this world of woe,
Asking Thee to guard and keep us
Safely all our path below.
3 Holy Father --- such His pleading ---
Keep, O keep them in Thy name;
As Thou lovedst Me, O Father,
Thou hast loved them the same.
4 Thus by God the Son committed
To the Father's tender care,
Thus by God the Father loved,
Can we doubt, or can we fear?
