1 Bright source of everlasting love!
To thee our souls we raise;
And to thy matchless bounty rear
A monument of praise.

2 Thy mercy gilds the path of life
With ev'ry cheering ray;
Kindly restrains the rising tear,
Or wipes that tear away.

3 When, sunk in guilt, our race approach'd
The borders of despair;
Thy grace through Jesus' blood proclaim'd
A free salvation near.

4 What shall we render, bounteous Lord,
For all the grace we see?
Alas! the goodness worms can yield
Extendeth not to thee.

5 To tents of wo, to beds of pain,
Our cheerful feet repair;
And, with the gifts thy hand bestows,
Relieve the mourners there.

6 The widow's heart shall sing for joy;
The orphan shall be glad;
And hung'ring souls we'll gladly point
To Christ the living bread.

7 Thus, passing through this vale of tears,
Our useful light shall shine;
And others learn to glorify
Our Father's name divine.
