Father of love, from age to age

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Father of love! from age to age
The wonders of thy grace,
The heart and lips of saints engage,
In cheerful songs, to praise.

2 Creatures in various trains to thee
Raise the dependent eye;
Thy stores of goodness rich and free,
Their various wants supply.

3 But O! the treasures of thy love,
To man's apostate race,
Are boundless mysteries, far above
Both man's and angel's praise.

4 Jesus! in whom a fullness dwells,
Through endless years the same,
To every hungry soul reveals
The glories of his name.

5 Thousands in this dark world below,
His faithfulness attest;
In worlds above ten thousand know,
That humble souls are blest.
