CAC GHB 461 FATHER OF MERCY IN THY WORD


461—Father of mercies in Thy word Hymn
Father of mercies in Thy word
What endless glory shines!
For ever be Thy name adored
For these celestial lines
Here the springs of consolation rise
To cheer the fainting mind
And thirst souls receive supplies
And sweet refreshment find
Here the Redeemers welcome voice
Spreads heavenly peace around
And life and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound
Oh may these heav’nly pages be
My ever dear delight
And still new beauties may I see
And still increasing light
Divine Instructor, gracious God
Be Thou for ever near
Teach me to love Thy sacred word
And view my Saviour there
