Jesus' mercies never fail

Representative Text

1 Jesusā€˜ mercies never fail,
This we prove at every meal;
Lord, we thank Thee for Thy grace,
Gladly join to sing Thy praise.

2 Lord, the gifts Thou dost bestow
Can refresh and cheer us too;
But no gift can to the heart
Be what Thou, our Saviour, art.
