1
OUR God and Father, we draw near to Thee
In all the worth of Thy belovèd Son;
All Thou hast e'er desired from man we see
In Him, Thy Christ, Thine own anointed One.
2
No thought of His e'er moved apart from Thine;
Each holy footstep gave Thee fresh delight;
Perfect expression of Thy will divine
Thou hadst in Him - come forth from glory bright.
3
Thou ever lovedst Him - ere time began
He was beside Thee - one in all Thou art;
In Godhead counsel one, in that vast plan
In which Thou wouldst make known to men Thy heart.
4
And now Thou lov'st Him, for Himself He gave -
Theme of our song when time shall cease to be;
Laid down His life that Thou, O God, shouldst have
Fruit of Thy love in sons who worship Thee.
