His Bountiful Care / Bountiful Merciful Wonderful Love

This hymn about God's love for humanity, as it is expressed in creation, was written by American evangelical children's hymn writer and Sunday School organiser, Lizzie deArmond (1847-1936)

With meter 8.8.8.8 and refrain / Long meter, it was set to a tune written for the text by Charles H Gabriel (1856-1932), called HIS BOUNTIFUL CARE.

Copyright was first registered in 1900 by E O Excell. This, and the dates of death of the author and composer, mean that the hymn is now in the public domain in most places.

More recent publications include Sacred Sankey's Sacred songs & solos : revised and enlarged, with standard hymns : twelve hundred pieces - published in approx 1935 by Marshall, Morgan & Scott (ref) - this is out of print, but occasionally available via Amazon and other 2nd-hand book sources.

Lyrics


Traditional language

He sendeth the sunshine and rain,
He scattereth dew on the flowers;
He maketh the desert to bloom—
His blessings descend as the showers.

Chorus:
Bountiful,
Merciful,
wonderful love!
Bountiful,
Merciful,
wonderful love!

He causeth the rivers to flow,
The fields now with verdure are clad;
He tempers the wind to His lambs,
The earth with His fullness is glad.

For bounty so royal and free,
For mercies unending and new,
Oh, help us to praise Thee, dear Lord,
And serve Thee in all that we do.

Modern English

He sends us the sunshine and rain,
He scatters dew on the flowers;
He makes the desert to bloom—
His blessings descend as the showers.

Chorus:
Bountiful,
Merciful,
wonderful love!
Bountiful,
Merciful,
wonderful love!

He causes the rivers to flow,
The fields now with verdure are clad;
He tempers the wind to His lambs,
The earth with His fullness is glad.

For bounty so royal and free,
For mercies un-ending and new,
Oh, help us to praise our dear Lord,
And serve him in all that we do.
