Father of Mercies, in Thy Word

Father of mercies, in your Word
  What endless glory shines!
For ever be your name adored
  For these celestial lines

O may these heav'nly pages be
  My ever-dear delight;
And still new beauties may I see,
  And still increasing light.

Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,
  O be for ever near;
Teach me to love Thy sacred Word,
  And view my Saviour there.

—by Anne Steele (1717-1778)

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
