Father of Mercies! God of Love! Lyrics

Father of mercies! God of love!
Whose kind compassion still we prove,
Our praise accept, and bless us here,
As brought to this-another year.

We sing Thy goodness all divine,
Whose radiant beams around us shine,
'Tis through Thy goodness we appear
Preserved to this-another year.

Our souls, our all we here resign;
Make us, and keep us ever Thine;
And grant that in Thy love and fear
We may begin-another year.

Be this our sweet experience still,
To know and do Thy holy will;
Then shall our souls, with joy sincere,
Bless Thee for this-another year.

Still, Lord, through life Thy love display,
And then in death's approaching day,
We'll joyful part with all that's here,
Nor wish on earth-another year.
