Thanks To God Who Us Hath Given

Representative Text

1 Thanks to God who us hath given
Grace abundant through the years;
Thanks to Him whose peace from heaven
Led our hearts through doubts and fears.

2 Hear us, Lord, as we are praying
For the souls that strayed and fell;
Call them home who still are straying,
Wake them through the calling bell.

3 Send Thy willing servants thither
On the highways, streets, and lanes
That the fallen may come hither,
Saved from everlasting banes.

4 That the fallen ones who wander
And have lost God's word of love
May catch sight of heaven yonder
And the Christmas Star above.

5 When our ship in storm immerses
And is threatened by its might,
Come, O Jesus, on the surges,
Be it even late at night.

6 Through the breakers safely guide us,
That we land upon the shore;
Thou dost help when woes betide us,
Thou wilt help us evermore.
