During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Praises for Thy Glorious Grace

God the Father of our Savior

Author: Mark Minnick (2001)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 God and Father of our Savior,
praise for glories of Thy grace,
every blessing purposed favor,
granted in Thy Son's embrace.

God and Father, we would bless Thee;
help us praise Thee in this place.
Hallelujah, blessed Father,
praises for Thy glorious grace.

2 Chosen sinners long predestined
to be holy, blameless still,
made Thy sons by love unfathomed.
Oh, the kindness of Thy will! [Refrain]

3 Thine own Son, love's dear Redeemer,
ransom's price His precious blood;
sins forgiven for the treasure
of that ageless, cleansing flood. [Refrain]

4 Myst'ry of eternal wisdom,
Thy good pleasure now made known;
heav'n and earth's entire creation
bent beneath Thy Son's bright throne. [Refrain]

5 Thou, intent Thine heirs to make us,
workest all things to this will,
that those hoping first in Jesus
might with praise the heavens fill. [Refrain]

6 Bless Thee for Thy promised Spirit,
Holy Spirit, Christians' Seal,
Pledge we shall in Christ inherit
what redemption shall reveal! [Refrain]
