Hymn of the Week – Father of Mercies

Music: Traditional
Poetry: F. W. Faber, et al.
Free MP3 recording from the television programme In Search of the Lord’s Way

Father of mercies, day by day
My love to Thee grows more and more;
Thy gifts are strewn upon my way
Like sands upon the great seashore,
Like sands upon the great seashore.

Father of mercies, God of love,
Whose gentle gifts all creatures share,
The rolling seasons as they move
Proclaim to all Thy constant care,
Proclaim to all Thy constant care.

Father of mercies, may our hearts
Ne’er overlook Thy bounteous care;
But what our Father’s hand imparts
Still own in grateful praise and prayer,
Still own in grateful praise and prayer.
