METER: 88 88 88
SUGGESTED TUNE: ST. CATHERINE
This is the meter for the hymn "Faith of Our Fathers."
1. Lord, won-drous things you've done for us;
There is no one as great as you.
So won-drous are your plans for us,
Far more than I could ev-er tell.
You don't want of-fered sac-ri-fice;
Burnt gifts for sin you do not ask.
2. You've giv-en me an ear to hear;
So I have said, "Lord, here I am!
My faith-ful-ness you've writ-ten down;
I love to do your will, O God,
I keep your teach-ings in my heart."
I've told the news of how you save.
3. In the as-sem-bly of your own
You know I've not re-strained my lips.
Your sav-ing help I've hid-den not;
I tell your sav-ing faith-ful-ness;
Your stead-fast love and faith-ful-ness
I do not from your peo-ple hide.
