Almighty Father of Mankind ~ Hymn

 

Almighty Father Of Mankind

Almighty Father of mankind,
On Thee our hopes remain;
And when the day of trouble comes
I shall not trust in vain.

In early years Thou wast my Guide,
And of my youth the Friend;
And as my days began with Thee,
With Thee my days shall end.

I know the Power in Whom I trust,
The arm on which I lean;
He will my Savior ever be
Who has my Savior been.

My God, who causedst me to hope
When life began to beat,
And, when a stranger in the world,
Didst guide my wandering feet.

Thou wilt not cast me off when age
And evil days descend;
Thou wilt not leave me in despair
To mourn my latter end.

Therefore in life I’ll trust in Thee,
In death I will adore;
And after death will sing Thy praise
When time shall be no more.

Words: Michael Bruce (1746-1767).

Music: St. Peter (Reinagle), Al­ex­an­der R. Rein­ag­le, 1836

I attended a funeral on Saturday and will be attending a funeral on Monday and I thought this hymn was a great hymn in light of  the death of these dear saints of God…

  1. It is indeed an appropriate hymn. Such beautiful words of hope. Another one Ellen B.? It’s comforting to know they went home to be with the Lord.
    I hope today is a day of rest for you.

  2. I know the Power in Whom I trust, the arm on which I lean;

    And when the day of trouble comes I shall not trust in vain. Thank you for sharing these powerful words.

    God Bless you today Ellen and sustain you tomorrow.
