When all thy mercies, O my God,
My rising soul surveys,
Transported with the view, I'm lost
In wonder, love, and praise.


Oh, how shall words with equal warmth
The gratitude declare
That glows within my ravished heart?
But Thou canst read it there.


Thy Providence my life sustained,
And all my wants redressed,
While in the silent womb I lay,
And hung upon the breast.


To all my weak complaints and cries
Thy mercy lent an ear,
Ere yet my feeble thoughts had learned
To form themselves in prayer.


Unnumbered comforts on my soul
Thy tender care bestowed,
Before my infant heart conceived
From whom those comforts flowed.


When in the slippery paths of youth
With heedless steps I ran,
Thine arm, unseen, conveyed me safe,
And led me up to man.


Through hidden dangers, toils, and deaths,
It gently cleared my way;
And through the pleasing snares of vice,
More to be feared than they.


When worn with sickness, oft hast thou
With health renewed my face,
And when in sins and sorrows sunk
Revived my soul with grace.


Thy bounteous hand with wordly bliss
Has made my cup run o'er
And in a kind and faithful friend
Has doubled all my store.


Ten thousand thousand precious gifts
My daily thanks employ;
Nor is the least a thankful heart,
That takes those gifts with joy.


Through every period of my life
Thy goodness I'll pursue;
And after death, in distant worlds,
The pleasing theme renew.


When nature falls, and day and night
Divide Thy works no more.
My ever grateful heart, O Lord,
Thy mercies shall adore.


Through all eternity, to thee
A grateful song I'll raise;
But O eternity's too short
To utter all thy praise!


---Alternative verses---


Oh, how can words with equal warmth
The gratitude declare
That glows within my ravished heart?
But Thou canst read it there.


Through every period of my life
Thy goodness I'll pursue;
The desert past, in glory bright,
The precious theme renew.


Through every period of my life
Thy goodness I'll pursue;
And after death, in distant worlds,
The glorious theme renew.


Through all eternity to Thee
A joyful song I'll raise;
But, oh, eternity's too short
To utter all Thy praise!


Through every period of my life
Thy goodness I'll pursue;
And after death, in distant worlds,
The pleasing theme renew.


Ten thousand thousand precious gifts
My daily thanks employ;
Nor is the least a thankful heart,
That tastes those gifts with joy.
