Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
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.
