Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Father of love, from age to age

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.
