Father of mercies, in your Word

Father of mercies, in your word
what endless glory shines!
for ever be your name adored
for these celestial lines.

2. Here may the blind and hungry come
and light and food receive;
here shall the humble guest find room
and taste and see and live.

3. Here our Redeemer’s welcome voice
spreads heavenly peace around,
and life and everlasting joys
attend the glorious sound.

4. Here springs of consolation rise
to cheer the fainting mind,
and thirsty souls receive supplies
and sweet refreshment find.

5. O may these heavenly pages be
my ever dear delight;
and still new beauties may I see,
and still increasing light!

6. Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,
be now and ever near:
teach me to love your sacred word
and view my Saviour there.
