Philip Paul Bliss is the composer of the music for this hymn-text. Bliss was born on July 9, 1838, Clearfield County, Pennsylvania and died December 29, 1876, Ashtabula, Ohio. He is buried in Chestnut Grove Cemetery, Ashtabula, Ohio.

Bliss and his wife died in a train wreck caused by a bridge collapse. He survived the initial impact, but went back into the flames in an unsuccessful attempt to rescue his wife. The remains retrieved from the Ashtabula disaster were placed in a common grave marked by a cenotaph in the Ashtabula cemetery. A cenotaph in memory of the Blisses was erected in the cemetery at Rome, Pennsylvania, July 17, 1877.

The night before that terrible railroad accident at Ashtabula… He said to his audiences, “I may not pass this way again”; then he sang a solo, “I’m going home tomorrow. ” Does indeed prove prophetic of his own home going.

Deuteronomy 4:31 For Jehovah your God is a compassionate God; He will not fail you nor let you perish nor forget the covenant with your fathers which He swore to them.

Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that it is Jehovah your God who is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and lovingkindness to the thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments,

Luke 1:50 And His mercy is unto generations and generations, unto those who fear Him.

Truly, our Father's mercy is incomparable, nothing can compete with it. It stretches far from generation unto generation. May we always treasure our Father's mercy towards us which we can enjoy in His Son and thus give Him the praises due!

May we always give Him the proper worship every Lord's day.

Abba Father! we worship You for Your mercy and grace!

"According to Lamentations 3:22 and 23, God’s mercy, like the dew, is fresh every morning. Mercy in the Old Testament eventually issues in grace in the New Testament. Grace is God reaching us. When God reaches us in a positive manner, full of mercy and compassion, He becomes grace to us. Manna coming down with the dew signifies that Christ as our heavenly bread of life comes to us through grace. (Truth Lessons, Level 3, Vol. 1, Ch. 16, Section 4)

Hymn 26

SUBJECT: WORSHIP OF THE FATHER-HIS MERCY

METER: 8. 7. 8. 7. 8. 7.

AUTHOR: Witness Lee

COMPOSER: Philip P. Bliss

1 God, we praise Thee for Thy mercy,

’Tis so great and so profound!

In our weakness and our failures;

With its greatness it abounds.

We adore Thee! we adore Thee!

With such mercy we’ve been crowned!

2 How we marvel at this mercy

So far-reaching and so vast!

It has reached us, e’en the sinners,

And will ever hold us fast.

From this mercy, from this mercy,

What can cause us to be cast?

3 For Thy mercy we are grateful,

’Tis so rich, so plenteous!

Thru Thy mercy in redemption,

Thou hast richly favored us.

If without this, if without this,

How could we be favored thus?

4 Oh, Thy mercy, so inspiring!

Gentle, tender, dear and sweet!

With Thy patience and Thy kindness,

Us in all our need it meets.

It we treasure, it we treasure,

Nothing can with it compete.

5 Father, we enjoy Thy mercy,

Ever fresh and ever new;

Every morning shed upon us,

It refreshes as the dew.

How we taste it! how we taste it!

Giving Thee the praises due.

6 We can never cease to praise Thee,

As Thy mercy e’er endures;

All Thy grace and all Thy favor,

Ever for us it secures.

Trusting in it, trusting in it,

Thy sure mercy us assures.
