“God of Mercy, God of Grace” by Henry F. Lyte, 1793-1847 Text From: THE HANDBOOK TO THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1942) p.20
1. God of mercy, God of grace, Show the brightness of Thy face; Shine upon us, Savior, shine, Fill Thy church with light divine, And Thy saving health extend Unto earth’s remotest end.
2. Let the people praise Thee, Lord! Be by all that live adored; Let the nations shout and sing Glory to their Savior King, At Thy feet their tribute pay, And Thy holy will obey.
3. Let the people praise Thee, Lord! Earth shall then her fruits afford, God to man His blessing give, Man to God devoted live; All below and all above One in joy and light and love.
