The Faith We Sing Number 2052
Text: Sts. 1-3 by Hery Richard McFayden, alt.; Sts. 4-5 by Marty Haugen
Music: Walker's Southern Harmony (1835); harm. by David N. Johnson
Tune: PROSPECT, Meter: LM

1. The lone, wild bird in lofty flight
is still with you, nor leaves your sight.
And I am yours! I rest in you,
Great Spirit, come, rest in me, too.

2. The ends of earth are in your hand,
the sea's dark deep and far off land.
And I am yours! I rest in you,
Great Spirit, come, rest in me, too.

3. Each secret thought is known to you,
the path I walk my whole life through;
my days, my deeds, my hopes, my fears,
my deepest joys, my silent tears.

Sts. 4-5 subject to copyright.
