110 ~ God's Free Mercy Streameth


God's free mercy streameth Over all the world, And His banner gleameth, By His church unfurled; Broad and deep and glorious, As the heaven above, Shines in might victorious His eternal love.


Summer suns are glowing Over land and sea; Happy light is flowing, Bountiful and free; Everything rejoices In the mellow rays; Earth's ten thousand voices Swell the psalm of praise.


Lord, upon our blindness Thy pure radiance pour; For Thy loving-kindness We would love Thee more; And when clouds are drifting Dark across the sky, Then, the veil uplifting, Father, be Thou nigh.


We will never doubt Thee, Tho' Thou veil Thy light; Life is dark without Thee, Death with Thee is bright. Light of light, shine o'er us On our pilgrim way, Go Thou still before us To the endless day.
