Hymn/Song Information

THE LOVE OF THE FATHER




Come, happy souls, approach your God
With new melodious songs;
Come, render to almighty grace
The tribute of your tongues.


So strange, so boundless was the love
That pitied dying men,
The Father sent his equal Son
To give them life again.


Thy hands, dear Jesus, were not armed
With a revenging rod,
No hard commission to perform
The vengeance of a God.


But all was mercy, all was mild,
And wrath forsook the throne,
When Christ on the kind errand came,
And brought salvation down.


Here, sinners, you may heal your wounds,
And wipe your sorrows dry;
Trust in the mighty Saviour's name,
And you shall never die.


See, dearest Lord, our willing souls
Accept thine offered grace;
We bless the great Redeemer's love,
And give the Father praise.


---Alternative verses---


Here, sinners, you may heal your wounds,
And wipe your sorrows dry;
Come, trust the mighty Saviour's name,
And you shall never die.
