67A. God of Mercy, God of Grace

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

2 Let the people praise you, Lord;
be by all that live adored.
Let the nations shout and sing
glory to their gracious King;
at your feet their tribute pay,
and your holy will obey.

3 Let the people praise you, Lord;
earth shall then its fruits afford.
Unto us your blessing give;
we to your devoted live,
all below and all above,
one in joy and light and love.
