116. Oh Render Thanks to God Above

by Tate
Oh render thanks to God above,
The fountain of eternal love;
Whose mercy firm through ages past
Hath stood, and doth forever last.
“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” (1 John 4:8)
“For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.” (Psalm 100:5)
The Father's boundless love we sing,
The fountain whence our blessings spring;
How great the depth, how high it flows,
No saint can tell, no angel knows.
“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” (Ephesians 3:19)
Its length and breadth no eye can trace,
No thought explore the bounds of grace;
The love that saved our souls from hell
Transcends the creature's power to tell.
