     29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there. 30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them: 31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel. 32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way. 33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude? 34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes. 35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. 36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full. 38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children. 39 And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.(KJV)

1. When all Thy mercies, O my God, 
My rising soul surveys, 
Transported with the view, I’m lost 
In wonder, love, and praise. 

2. Ten thousand thousand precious gifts 
My daily thanks employ; 
Nor is the least a cheerful heart 
That tastes those gifts with joy. 

3. Through every period of my life 
Thy goodness I’ll pursue 
And after death, in distant worlds, 
The glorious theme renew. 

4. When nature fails, and day and night 
Divide Thy works no more, 
My ever grateful heart, O Lord, 
Thy mercies shall adore. 

5. Through all eternity to Thee 
A joyful song I’ll raise; 
But, oh! eternity’s too short 
To utter all Thy praise.
