93. The Tender Love a Father Has

1 The tender love a father has
For all his children dear,
Such love the Lord bestows on them
Who worship him in fear.

3 The Lord remembers we are dust,
And all our frailty knows;
Man's days are like the tender grass,
And as the flower he grows.

3 The flow'r is withered by the wind
That smites with blighting breath;
So man is quickly swept away
Before the blast of death.

4 Unchanging is the love of God,
From age to age the same,
Displayed to all who do his will
And reverence his Name.

5 Those who his gracious cov'nant keep
The Lord will ever bless;
Their children's children shall rejoice
To see his righteousness.
