"When All Thy Mercies, O My God" by Joseph Addison, 1672-1719 Text From: THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941) 1. When all Thy mercies, O my God, My rising soul surveys, Transported with the view, I'm lost In wonder, love, and praise. 2. Ten thousand thousand precious gifts My daily thanks employ; Nor is the least a cheerful heart That tastes those gifts with joy. 3. Through every period of my life Thy goodness I'll pursue And after death, in distant worlds, The glorious theme renew. 4. When nature fails, and day and night Divide Thy works no more, My ever grateful heart, O Lord, Thy mercies shall adore. 5. Through all eternity to Thee A joyful song I'll raise; But, oh! eternity's too short To utter all Thy praise.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Debbie Harris and is in the public domain.
