Of All The Gifts Thine Hand Love Bestows


Of all the gifts thine hand bestows,
Thou Giver of all good!
Not heav’n itself a richer knows,
Than my Redeemer’s blood.

Faith too, the blood receiving grace,
From the same hand we gain;
Else sweetly, as it suits our case,
That gift had been in vain.

Till thou thy teaching pow’r apply,
Our hearts refuse to see,
And weak, as a distemper’d eye,
Shut out the view of thee.

Blind to the merits of thy Son,
What mis’ry we endure!
Yet fly that hand, from which alone,
We could expect a cure.

We praise thee, and would praise thee more,
To thee our all we owe;
The precious Saviour, and the pow’r
That makes him precious too.
