Sorry, I meant three-stanza, but the stanzaic metre is double that given above, so the three stanzas in the hymnal correspond to six of those above. One half-stanza (3A) in the hymnal, however, is not reflected in the lyrics above:

Her wings shelter men of all nations,
Of earth's every color and race.
She has gathered them all in her keeping
To present to the Lord face to face.

Are these lines also by Guy Smith, and if not, who wrote them?

The date of writing and the copyright status of the lyrics seem uncertain.
