264. When All Your Mercies, O My God

1 When all your mercies, O my God,
My waking soul surveys,
Transported with the view, I'm lost
In wonder, love, and praise.

2 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts
My daily thanks employ;
Nor is the least a cheerful heart
That tastes those gifts with joy.

3 Through ev'ry passing phase of life
Your goodness I'll pursue,
And after death, in distant worlds,
The glorious theme renew.

4 Through all eternity, to you
A joyful song I'll raise;
But, oh, eternity's too short
To utter all your praise!
