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.
