1. God’s free mercy streameth over all the world,
    And His banner gleameth, By His church unfuried;
    Broad and deep and glorious, As the heaven above,
    Shines in might victorious His eternal love.
  2. Summer suns are glowing over land and sea;
    Happy light is flowing, Bountiful and free;
    Everything rejoices in the mellow rays;
    Earth’s ten thousand voices swell the psalm of praise.
  3. Lord, upon our blindness thy pure radiance pour;
    For Thy loving kindness we would love Thee more;
    And when clouds are drifting dark across the sky,
    Then, the veil uplifting, father, be Thou nigh.
  4. We will never doubt Thee, tho’ veil Thy light;
    Life is dark without Thee, death with Thee is bright.
    Light of light, shine o’er us on our pilgrim way,
    Go Thou still before us to the endless day.
