Original text and translations
Father, in Thy mysterious presence kneeling;
Fain would our souls feel all Thy kindling love;
For we are weak, and need some deep revealing
Of trust, and strength, and calmness from above.
Lord, we have wandered forth through doubt and sorrow,
And you have made each step an onward one,
And we will ever trust each unknown morrow;
You will sustain us till its work is done.
Now, Father, now in your dear presence kneeling,
Our spirits yearn to feel your kindling love;
Now make us strong; we need your deep revealing
Of trust and strength and calmness from above.
