Christ My Song - 633
Fount of everlasting love - Spiritual refreshing
(Ray Palmer/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
"I will pour my Spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring." (Isaiah 44,3)
1. Fount of everlasting love,
rich thy streams of mercy are;
flowing purely from above,
beauty marks their course afar.
2. Lo ! Thy Church, athirst and faint,
drinks the full, refreshing tide;
thou hast heard her sad complaint,
floods of grace are sweeping wide.
3. God of mercy, to thy throne,
now our fervent thanks we bring;
thine the glory, thine alone,
joyous praise to thee we sing.
4. While we lift our grateful song,
let the Spirit still descend;
roll the tide of grace along,
widening, deepening to the end.
Ray Palmer, The Poetical Works of Ray Palmer, 1876, 65-66.
