O Father, dearest Father

Sheet music

  1. I rest in You, safe hidden,
    O dearest Father mine.
    When fears and cares surround me,
    in You deep peace I find.
  2. Within Your heart I’m resting;
    Your love enfolds me there.
    Your heart knows all my suffering
    and how much I can bear.
  3. All that will come upon me
    I know You’ve planned, O Lord.
    The suff’ring that You send me
    serves only to my good.
  4. My heart in fear and sorrow
    may rest in quietness.
    I trust in Your will wholly,
    and this is blessedness.
