Thanks For Mercies Past Receive

Melody -

H. J. Buckroll, 1803-71

1. Thanks for mercies past receive;
Pardon all, their faults confessing;
Time that's lost may all retrieve:
May thy children,
May thy children
Ne'er again thy Spirit grieve.
  2. Bless thou all our days of leisure,
Help us selfish lures to flee;
Sanctify our every pleasure;
Pure and blameless may it be;
May our gladness,
May our gladness
Draw us evermore to thee.

3. Let thy father-hand be shielding
All who here shall meet no more;
May their seed-time past be yielding
Year by year a richer store;
Those returning,
Those returning
Make more faithful than before.
