Thou God of Love

 

(10.6.10.4.)

Composed 1867 and published in “Book of Praise Hymnal”, Macmillan, 1868.

1 Thou God of Love! beneath Thy sheltering wings
    We leave our holy dead
  To rest in hope! from this world’s sufferings
    Their souls have fled.
 
2 Oh! when our hearts are burthen’d with the weight
    Of life and all its woes,
  Let us remember them, and calmly wait
    To our life’s close. Amen.

J. E. Browne..
