31. When All Thy Mercies, O My God

1 When all Thy mercies, O my God,
My rising 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 last a cheerful heart
That tastes those gifts with joy.

3 Thro' ev'ry period of my life
Thy goodness I’ll pursue,
And after death, in distant worlds,
The glorious theme renew.

4 When nature fails and day and night
Divide Thy works no more,
My ever grateful heart, O Lord,
Thy mercy shall adore.

5 Through all eternity to Thee
A joyful song I’ll raise;
But, oh! eternity’s too short
To utter all Thy praise.

Amen.
