Music: Traditional Swedish Melody

Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	Children of the heav'nly 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.
