Father of Mercies, In Your Word (click title to play)

#144, Trinity Hymnal (© 1990)
Father of mercies, in your Word what endless glory shines;
forever be your name adored for these celestial lines.
Here may the wretched sons of want exhaustless riches find;
riches above what earth can grant and lasting as the mind.
Here the Redeemer’s welcome voice spreads heav’nly peace around;
and life and everlasting joys attend the blissful sound.
O may these heav’nly pages be my ever dear delight;
and still new beauties may I see, and still increasing light.
Divine Instructor, gracious Lord, O be forever near;
teach me to love your sacred Word, and view my Savior there.
