We praise thee, heavenly Father

Full Text

1 For all the many mercies
That ‘round our pathway throng;
We praise Thee, heav’nly Father,
We come to Thee in song;
For Thine the morning brightness,
And Thine, the sunset light;
And Thine, the starry jewels
That glitter through the night;
And Thine, the starry jewels
That glitter through the night.

2 We praise Thee, blessed Saviour,
Who came for us to die,
And now for us art pleading,
In majesty on high;
Thy love is warm and tender,
Thy grace is rich and free;
The gift of our salvation,
We owe, dear Lord, to Thee;
The gift of our salvation,
We owe, dear Lord, to Thee.

3 We praise Thee, Holy Spirit,
Who cometh as a dove;
To make us pure and gentle,
And tune our hearts to love;
We praise Thee, God almighty,
The Father and the Son;
And gracious Holy Spirit,
Forever Three in One;
And gracious Holy Spirit,
Forever Three in One.
