Hymn Selection



BLEST God and Father, we confess
We every grace derive from Thee,
And from Thy well-belovèd Son
Whose death secured our liberty.
The Holy Spirit's power reveals
The things that to our peace belong;
Here nothing ill can now intrude,
Nor jarring notes disturb our song.
How may we rise to Thy vast thoughts,
Or apprehend Thy sovereign will -
The grace that sets our souls on high,
And love that brings us nearer still?
Embraced in Thine unchanging love,
Its holy stimulus doth serve
To wake our richest songs of praise,
And claim our hearts without reserve.
O wondrous sphere! 'Tis vibrant now
With one resounding note of joy
From many sons who worship Thee -
Eternity's serene employ.
Absorbed in favour all divine
Conferred on those of high estate,
Our hearts, surrend'ring unto Thee,
Are held in love so full, so great.

Mrs. A.M. Fennell
