Loving Father

Though the dark be cast around me,

night to you is bright as day.

I won’t fear its growing shadow,

you are here to light my way.

Can I go where you can’t follow,

To the heights, or lowest sea?

You are there, behind, before me;

Your strong hand is holding me.

Loving Father, you have made me,

I am yours and you are mine.

Every trial, tear, and heartache

Will bring blessing in your time.

All my days are in your keeping.

Grace and mercy follow me.

When it’s dark, you will sustain me.

I won’t fear; I will believe.

You know everything about me,

Every word before I speak.

In my mother’s womb you formed me,

Planned my days and destiny.

There’s no reason I should doubt you;

In your thoughts I’ll ever stay.

Though your ways are not my own ways,

I will trust you, come what may.

Loving Father, you have made me,

I am yours and you are mine.

Every trial, tear, and heartache

Will bring blessing in your time.

All my days are in your keeping;

Grace and mercy follow me.

When it’s dark, you will sustain me.

I won’t fear, you’re here with me.

Though the dark be cast around me,

Night to you is bright as day.

I won’t fear its growing shadow,

You are here to light my way.
