Father Of Love From Age To Age

Father of love! from age to age
The wonders of thy grace,
The heart and lips of saints engage,
In cheerful songs, to praise.

Creatures in various trains to thee
Raise the dependent eye;
Thy stores of goodness rich and free,
Their various wants supply.

But O! the treasures of thy love,
To man’s apostate race,
Are boundless mysteries, far above
Both man’s and angel’s praise.

Jesus! in whom a fullness dwells,
Through endless years the same,
To every hungry soul reveals
The glories of his name.

Thousands in this dark world below,
His faithfulness attest;
In worlds above ten thousand know,
That humble souls are blest.
