CLV. Father of everlasting love

1 Father of everlasting love,
Take to thyself thy mighty power;
Let all earth’s sons thy mercy prove,
Let all thy wond'rous grace adore.

2 The triumphs of thy love display;
In every heart reign thou alone;
Till all thy foes confess thy sway,
And glory ends what grace begun.

3 The God of grace, and health, and power,
Fountain of light and love below,
Abroad thine healing influence shower,
O’er all the nations let it flow.

4 Inflame our hearts with perfect love,
In us the work of faith fulfil;
So not heaven’s host shall swifter move,
Than we on earth, to do thy will.
