Hymn/Song Information

BLESSEDNESS OF LOVE TO GOD




Ah, happy hours! whene'er upsprings
My soul to yon eternal Source,
Whence the glad river downward sings,
Watering with goodness all my course.


Can I, with loveless heart, receive
Tokens of love that never cease?
Can I be thankless, Lord, and grieve
Thee, who art all my joy and peace?


Forth from thy rich and bounteous store
Life’s common blessings daily flow;
More than I dare to as , far more
Than I deserve, dost thou bestow.


Nor here alone; hope pierces far
Through all the shades of earth and time;
Faith mounts beyond the farthest star;
You shining heights she fain would climb.


Our faith shall rise to sight e’er long;
Soon will that hour of transport come,
When we shall join the angels’ song
Of praise to him who brought us home.
