Father Of Everlasting Grace

by Charles Wesley
No. 366


1 Father of everlasting grace,
Thy goodness and thy truth we praise,
Thy goodness and thy truth we prove;
Thou hast, in honor of thy Son,
The gift unspeakable sent down,
The Spirit of life, and power, and love.


2Send us the Spirit of thy Son
To make the depths of Godhead known,
To make us share the life divine;
Send him the sprinkled blood t'apply,
Send him our souls to sanctify,
And show and seal us ever thine.


3 So shall we pray, and never cease,
So shall we thankfully confess
Thy wisdom, truth, and power, and love,
With joy unspeakable adore,
And bless, and praise thee evermore,
And serve thee as thy hosts above.


4 Till added to that heavenly choir
We raise our songs of triumph higher,
And praise thee in a bolder strain,
Out-soar the firstborn seraph's flight,
And sing, with all our friends in light,
Thy everlasting love to man.
