Hymn/Song Information

Father of mercies in Your word What endless glory




Father of mercies, in Thy Word
What endless glory shines!
Forever be Thy Name adored
For these celestial lines.


Here may the blind and hungry come,
And light and food receive;
Here shall the lowliest guest have room,
And taste and see and live.


Here may the wretched sons of want
Exhaustless riches find;
Riches above what earth can grant,
And lasting as the mind.


Here the fair tree of knowledge grows
And yields a free repast;
And richer fruits than nature shows
Invite the longing taste.


Amidst these gloomy wilds below,
When dark and sad we stray,
Here beams of heaven relieve our woe,
And guide to endless day.


Here springs of consolation rise
To cheer the fainting mind,
And thirsty souls receive supplies,
And sweet refreshment find.


Here the Redeemer’s welcome voice
Spreads heavenly peace around
And life and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound.


Oh, may these hallowed pages be
Our joy by day and night,
And still new beauties may we see,
And still increasing light.


Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,
O grant our fervent prayer,
Teach us to love Thy sacred Word,
And view the Savior there.


---Alternative verses---


'Tis here the Saviour's welcome voice
Spreads heav'nly peace around;
And life, and everlasting joys,
Attend the blissful sound.


Here the fair tree of knowledge grows,
And yields a rich repast:
Sublimer sweets than nature knows
Invite the longing taste.


O! may these heavenly pages be
My ever dear delight;
And still new beauties may I see,
And still increasing light!


Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,
Be thou forever near;
Teach me to love thy sacred Word,
And view my Saviour here.


Here springs of consolation rise
To cheer the fainting mind,
The needy here receive supplies,
And rest the weary find.
