74 (C.M.) Isaac Watts

Father of mercies, in Thy word

What endless glory shines!

Forever be Thy name adored

For these celestial lines.

Here, may the wretched sons of want

Exhaustless riches find;

Riches above what earth can grant,

More lasting than the mind.

Here, the Redeemer's welcome voice

Spreads heavn'ly peace around;

And life and everlasting joys

Attend the blissful sound.

Oh, may these heav'nly pages be

My ever dear delight;

And still new beauties may I see,

And still increasing light.

Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,

Be Thou forever near;

Teach me to love Thy sacred word,

And view my Saviour there.
