Texts

Father of mercies, send thy grace

Lord, lead the way the Savior went

Lord, lead the way the Saviour went,
By lane and cell obscure,
And let love's treasures still be spent,
Like His, upon the poor:
Like Him, through scenes of deep distress,
Who bore the world's sad weight,
We, in their crowded loneliness,
Would seek the desolate.

The Universal Debt of Praise

Established in the highest heavens
The Lord has set his throne.
And over all His kingdom rules,
For He is God alone.
