1 Children of the heavenly Father safely in his bosom gather; nestling bird nor star in heaven such a refuge e'er was given. 2 God his own doth tend and nourish; in his holy courts they flourish; from all evil things he spares them; in his mighty arms he bears them. 3 Neither life nor death shall ever from the Lord his children sever; unto them his grace he showeth, and their sorrows all he knoweth. 4 Though he giveth or he taketh, God his children ne'er forsaketh; his the loving purpose solely to preserve them pure and holy.
