1 Fountain of light and living breath,
Where mercies never fail nor fade!
Fill us with life that hath no death,
Fill us with light that hath no shade;
Appoint the remnant of our days
To see thy power and sing thy praise.
2 Lord God of gods, before whose throne
Stand storms and fire! O what shall we
Return to Heaven that is our own,
When all this world belongs to thee?
We have no offering to impart
But praises and a wounded heart.
3 Great God, whose kingdom hath no end,
Into whose secrets none can dive,
Whose mercy none can apprehend,
Whose justice none can feel, and live!
What our weak minds cannot aspire
To know, Lord, teach me to admire.
