Hymn Selection


FATHER of lights, to Thee our hearts we lift
In thanks for every good and perfect gift;
Thou lovest still - as we approach Thy throne -
Our prayers to answer, and to bless Thine own.
Father of mercies, Thou from day to day
Dost comfort and sustain us on our way;
We praise Thee that Thou givest us below,
The depth and fulness of Thy love to know.
O Holy Father, may Thy Name be blest!
Thy chosen ones in Thee may safely rest,
Since by Thy power and with Thy presence near,
Kept in Christ Jesus, they have nought to fear.
Father of glory, who art ever wise,
How wondrous are Thy counsels in our eyes!
How vast the heritage that Thou dost see
For ever in the saints secured for Thee!
Father, we thank Thee and we bless Thy Name;
To Thee we voice our praise with one acclaim;
Thy love and grace, surpassing every need,
The deepest longings of our hearts exceed.
