O thou whose grace first found us - The blessing of the blessed (Carl Johann Philipp Spitta/Richard Massie/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The blessing of the blessed.

1. O thou whose grace first found us,
  whose love our hearts first won,
thou hast with mercies crowned us,
  as none beside hath done.

2. Thy mercies bid us bless thee,
  thy mercies bid us pray,
that others too may praise thee,
  and understand thy way.

3. Thy mercies bid us witness
  the truth of thy dear word,
that all may taste its sweetness,
  and bow before the Lord.

4. And since thou wert not stricken
  for us alone, but all,
Lord, many save and quicken, –
  we are too few and small!

Richard Massie, Lyra Domestica II, 1864, 77.
Translated from the German O du, der uns begegnet - Der Segen der Gesegneten
of Carl Johann Philipp Spitta.
