Fount of everlasting love

Representative Text

1 Fount of everlasting love!
Rich thy streams of mercy are,
Flowing purely from above,
Beauty marks their course afar.

2 Lo! Thy church, thy garden, now
Blooms beneath the heavenly shower
Sinners feel, and melt, and bow:
Mild, yet mighty, is thy power.

3 God of grace, before thy throne
Here our warmest thanks we bring;
Thine the glory, thine alone;
Loudest praise to thee we bring.
