Every good and perfect gift - God the Giver of all
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

God the Giver of all.

1. Every good and perfect gift
  descendeth from above;
all he gives is freely given;
  God, our God, is love.

2. Giver of all gifts Divine,
  give me more and more
life and light and peace and joy,
  from thy boundless store.

3. Everything this needy soul
  is sighing for, impart;
all that can satisfy and cheer
   this ever-longing heart;

4. all the pardon and the grace,
  the strength and blessedness,
the power for service here below,
  the deepening holiness;

5. everything this needy world
  requireth, Father, give, –
the blind to see, the deaf to hear,
  the dead in sin, to live.

6. Father of lights, our God,
  there is no change with thee;
as thou hast been in ages past,
  so shalt thou ever be.

7. O Giver of all good,
  for evermore the same,
hear when we plead thy love and truth,
  in the one blessèd Name!

Horatius Bonar, "Until the Day break", 1890, 32-33.
