The Gift of Song

From God, my Father, comes the gift of song
That uplifts faith and triumphs over wrong;
From God, my fortress strong—from Love divine—
In every place this gift of song is mine!
Encompassed round about on every side
With songs of sure deliverance I'll bide;
With everlasting joy upon my head
My heart shall sing, with daily wisdom fed.
Glad songs of praise shall bring me visions bright,
And sweetest peace to robe my thoughts in light;
So must I sing, and praise my Maker's might—
The power of Love, who giveth songs at night.
