When All Thy Mercies

These are the lyrics to what is probably my favorite RUF (Reformed University Fellowship - google it if you aren't familiar) song.

When All Thy Mercies
©1997 Stephen Barnes Music. Words: Joseph Addison. Music: Stephen Barnes.

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

Unnumbered comforts to my soul
Thy tender care bestowed,
Before my infant heart conceived
From Whom those comforts flowed.

Through all eternity to Thee
A joyful song I’ll raise
For oh, eternity’s too short
To utter all Thy praise!

2. When worn with sickness, oft hast Thou
With health renewed my face
And when in sins and sorrow sunk
Renewed my soul with grace

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

Through all eternity to Thee
A joyful song I’ll raise
For oh, eternity’s too short
To utter all Thy praise!

3. Through every period of my life
Thy goodness I’ll pursue,
And after death, in distant worlds,
The glorious theme renew.

Through all eternity to Thee
A joyful song I’ll raise
For oh, eternity’s too short
To utter all Thy praise!
