Father in your Love Enfold Us

The author and composer of this hymn are unknown. It was found, unattributed, in a hymn-book published by the Irish Redemptorist Fathers.

It is most likely patterned after "All Through the Night", which was published in 1914 and is sung to the Welch tune AR HYD Y NOS.

Instrumental version.


Father in your love enfold us,
All thro' the night.
Everlasting arms enfold us,
All thro' the night.
Soothe all bodies ill and aching,
Comfort those whose hearts are breaking,
Mind us all, asleep or waking,
All thro' the night.

Cross of Jesus, stand above us,
All thro' the night.
Sheltering tree of him who loves us,
All thro' the night.
Mother Mary, stand beside us,
Let no harm or sin betide us,
Nor no lack of love divide us,
All thro' the night.
