Hymn/Song Information

Father of mercy God of love Whose gift




Fountain of mercy, God of love,
Whose gifts all creatures share,
The rolling seasons as they move
Proclaim Thy constant care.


When in the bosom of the earth
The sower hid the grain,
Thy goodness marked its secret birth,
And sent the early rain.


The spring’s sweet influence, Lord, was Thine,
The seasons knew Thy call;
Thou mad’st the summer sun to shine,
The summer dews to fall.


The gifts of mercy from above
Matured the swelling grain;
And now the harvest crowns Thy love,
And plenty fills this plain.


O ne’er may our forgetful hearts
O’erlook Thy bounteous care,
But what our Father’s hand imparts
Still own in praise and prayer.


We own and bless thy gracious sway;
Thy hand all nature hails;
Seed-time nor harvest, night nor day,
Summer nor winter, fails.


To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God Whom we adore,
Be glory, as it was, is now,
And shall be evermore.

Fountain of mercy, God of love,
How rich thy bounties are!
The rolling seasons, as they move.
Proclaim thy constant care.

Father of mercy, God of love,
Whose gifts all creatures share,
The rolling seasons as they move
Proclaim Thy constant care.


The spring’s sweet influence, Lord, was thine;
The plants in beauty grew;
Thou gavest refulgent suns to shine.
And soft, refreshing dew.


The spring's sweet influence. Lord, was thine,
The plants in beauty grew;
Thou gavest the summer's sun to shine.
The mild refreshing dew.


The spring’s sweet influence, Lord, was thine:
The plants in beauty grew:
Thou gavest refulgent suns to shine,
And mild, refreshing dew.


These various mercies from above
Matured the swelling grain;
A kindly harvest crowns thy love,
And plenty fills the plain.


These varied mercies, from above,
Matured the swelling grain:
A kindly harvest crowns thy love,
And plenty fills the plain.
