Father Of Mercies is by Olly Knight and Ben Slee, who I don’t think I’ve heard from before, but this seems like a very suitable song for present circumstances.

This acoustic version was the one I first heard

This is the original

The lyrics
1
Father of mercies, the God of all comfort
He draws alongside us in times of distress
If ever we feel that our God has abandoned
We look to the cross where for us Jesus bled
Chorus
All our hope is found in You
You’ve delivered us from death to life
All our hope is found in You
Father of mercies, God of my life
2
Father of mercies, the wellspring of kindness
He comforts his people and lifts up their heads
Renewed by the depths of our Father’s compassion
We offer His love and the hope we possess
3
We share in the sufferings of Jesus our Saviour
He knows all our sorrows and shares our laments
Wherever He leads us this comfort will follow
We trust in the Saviour who raises the dead
We trust in the Saviour who raises the dead
