James R. Murray (1841–1905)


How strong and sweet my Fa­ther’s care,
That round about me, like the air,
Is with me al­ways, ev­ery­where!
He cares for me!

The thought great won­der with it brings,
My cares are all such lit­tle things,

Dear Fa­ther, watch­ing from above,
And as through life my steps shall move,
O care for me.
