293. God of mercy, God of grace

1 God of mercy, God of grace,
show the brightness of your face:
shine upon us, Saviour, shine,
fill your church with light divine,
and your saving health extend
to the earth's remotest end.

2 Let the people praise you, Lord!
be by all who live adored:
let the nations shout and sing
glory to their saviour king,
at your feet their tribute pay,
and your holy will obey.

3 Let the people crown you king!
then shall earth her harvest bring,
God to us his blessing give,
we to God devoted live;
all below and all above,
one in joy and light and love.
