116. Oh Render Thanks to God Above

L.M.
by Tate
1
Oh render thanks to God above,
 
The fountain of eternal love;
 
Whose mercy firm through ages past
 
Hath stood, and doth forever last.
1 John 4:8; Psalm 100:5
2
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.
Ephesians 3:19
3
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.
“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)
“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” (Ephesians 3:19)
