Fountain of being, God of love

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Fountain of being! God of love!
To thee our hearts we raise;
Thine all-sustaining power we prove,
And gladly sing thy praise.

2 Thine, wholly thine, we long to be;
Our sacrifice receive;
Made, and preserv'd, and sav'd by thee,
To thee ourselves we give.

3 Heavenward our every wish aspires;
For all thy mercies store,
The sole return thy love requires,
Is, that we ask for more.

4 For more we ask; we open, Lord,
Our hearts t'embrace thy will;
Renew us by thy heav'nly grace,
And with thy fulness fill.

5 Still may we find thy heavenly love
Shed in our hearts abroad;
So shall we ever live, and move,
And be with Christ in God.
