247. Father of mercies, in your word

1 Father of mercies, in your word
what endless glory shines!
For ever be your name adored
for these celestial lines.

2 Here may the blind and hungry come
and light and food receive;
here shall the humble guest find room
and taste and see and live.

3 Here the redeemer's welcome voice
spreads heavenly peace around,
and life and everlasting joys
attend the blissful sound.

4 Here springs of consolation rise
to cheer the fainting mind,
and thirsty souls receive supplies
and sweet refreshment find.

5 Divine instructor, gracious Lord,
be now and always near;
teach us to love your sacred word
and view our saviour here.
