1. Far as creation’s bounds extend,
Thy mercies, heavenly Lord, descend;
One chorus of perpetual praise
To Thee thy various works shall raise;
Thy saints to Thee in hymns impart
The transports of a grateful heart.
2. They chant the splendors of Thy name,
Delighted with the wondrous theme;
And bid the world’s wide realm admire
The glories of the Almighty Sire,
Whose throne all nature’s wreck survives,
Whose power through endless ages lives.
3. From Thee, great God, while every eye
Expectant waits the wished supply,
Their bread proportioned to the day,
Thy opening hands to each convey;
In every sorrow of the heart
Eternal mercy bears a part.
4. Who ask Thine aid with heart sincere
Shall find Thy succors ever near;
To Thee their prayer in each distress
Thy suffering servants, Lord, address;
And prove Thee, verging on the grave,
Nor slow to hear, nor weak to save.
