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

Here springs of consolation rise
To cheer the fainting mind,
And thirsty souls receive supplies,
And sweet refreshment find.

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

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

Verse 5
Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,
Be thou forever near;
Teach us to love Thy sacred Word,
And view the Saviour there.
