635. God of mercy, God of grace

1 God of mercy, God of grace,
show the brightness of Your face.
Shine upon us, Saviour, shine,
fill Your Church with light divine;
all Your saving health extend
unto earth's remotest end.

2 Let the people praise You, Lord;
be by all that live adored:
let the nations shout and sing
glory to their Saviour King;
at Your feet their tribute pay,
and Your holy will obey.

3 Let the people praise You, Lord;
earth shall then her fruits afford,
God to us His blessing give,
we to God devoted live;
all below, and all above,
one in joy and light and love.
