HYMN.

L

Father of mercies in thy word,
What endless riches shine!
For ever be thy name ador'd,
For knowledge thus divine.

Here the Redeemer's welcome voice
Spreads heavenly peace around;
And life and everlasting joys
Attend the blissful sound.

III.

O may those heavenly pages be
J
My first, my chief delight,
And still new beauties may see,
And still increase in light!

IV.

Divine Instructor! glorious Lord!
Be thou for ever near;
Teach me to love thy sacred word,
And view my Saviour there.
