Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.258

First Line: Father of mercies ! in Thy Word,

Father of mercies ! in Thy Word
What endless glory shines !
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 Redeemer's welcome voice
Spreads heavenly peace around ;
And life and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound.

4 Oh, may these heavenly pages be
My ever dear delight !
And still new beauties may I see,
And still increasing light.

5 Divine Instructor, gracious Lord !
Be Thou for ever near ;
Teach me to love Thy sacred Word,
And view my Saviour there.
