56. When All Your Mercies, O My God

1 When all your mercies, O my God,
My rising soul surveys,
Transported with the view, I'm lost
In wonder, love, and praise.

2 Unnumbered comforts to my soul
Your tender care bestowed,
Before my infant heart conceived
From whom those comforts flowed.

3 When worn with sickness, oft have you
With health renewed my face;
And, when in sins and sorrows sunk,
Revived my soul with grace.

4 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts
My daily thanks employ;
Nor is the least a cheerful heart
That tastes those gifts with joy.

5 Through ev'ry period of my life
Your goodness I'll pursue;
And after death, in distant worlds,
The glorious theme renew.

6 Through all eternity to you
A joyful song I'll raise;
For oh, eternity's too short
To utter all your praise.
