Hymn/Song Information

Father of lights we sing thy name Who




Father of lights! we sing thy name,
Who kindlest up the lamp of day,
Wide as he spreads his golden flame,
His beams thy power and love display.


Fountain of good! from thee precede
The copious drops of genial rain,
Which o’er the hill and through the mead
Revive the grass and swell the grain.


Through the wide world thy bounties spread;
yet millions of our guilty race,
Though by thy daily bounty fed,
Affront thy law, and spurn thy grace.


Not so may our forgetful hearts
O’erlook the tokens of thy care;
But what thy liberal hand imparts,
Still own in praise, still ask in prayer.


So shall our suns more grateful shine,
And showers in sweeter drops shall fall,
When all our hearts and lives are thine,
And thou, O God! enjoyed in all.
