Father of Mercies in Thy Word

1. Father of mercies, in Thy Word
What endless glory shines!
Forever be Thy Name adored
For these celestial lines.

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

Chorus: Father of mercies
Father of mercies
Father of mercies
In Thy Word
Father of mercies
Father of mercies
Father of mercies
In Thy Word

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.
(Repeat chorus)

5. Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,
Be Thou forever near;
Teach me to love Thy sacred Word,
And view my Savior there.
(Repeat chorus)
