Lyrics

Father of Mercies

Written by Olly Knight & Ben Slee

 

Father of mercies, the God of all comfort

He draws alongside us in times of distress

If ever we feel that our God has abandoned

We look to the cross where for us Jesus bled

 

All our hope is found in You

You’ve delivered us from death to life

All our hope is found in You

Father of mercies, God of my life

 

Father of mercies, the wellspring of kindness

He comforts his people and lifts up their heads

Renewed by the depths of our Father’s compassion 

We offer His love and the hope we possess

 

We share in the sufferings of Jesus our Saviour

He knows all our sorrows and shares our laments

Wherever He leads us this comfort will follow

We trust in the Saviour who raises the dead

We trust in the Saviour who raises the dead
