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;
heaven and earth's entire creation
bent beneath Thy Son's bright throne. [Refrain]
5 Thou, intent Thee heirs to make us,
workers 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]Source: Hymns to the Living God #213
