father of meries, in thy word what a endless glory

1.FATHER of mercies,in Thy word
What endless glory shines 1
For ever be Thy name adored
For these celestial lines.

2.Here may the wretched sons of want
Exhaustless riches find; Riches,
above what earth can grant,
And lasting as the mind.

3.Here the fair tree of knowledge
grows, And yields a free repast;
Sublimer sweets than nature
knows Invite the longing taste.

4.Here the Redeemer's welcome voice
Spreads heavenly peace around;
And life and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound.

5.Divine instructor, gracious Lord,
Be Thou for ever near;
Teach me to love Thy sacred word,
And view my Saviour there.
Amen.
