1
WE sing to Thee, Lord Jesus,
We own Thy claims supreme;
The greatness of Thy person,
Our all-engaging theme:
The glory of Thy manhood,
The charm of Thine own grace.
Enraptured by Thy beauty,
We gaze upon Thy face.
2
How fair is Thy companion!
How pleasing in Thy sight!
To be Thy joy for ever,
Object of Thy delight;
Fruit of Thine own blest service,
For whom Thou gav'st Thy life;
Fit answer to Thy suff'rings,
Thy glory, Lord, Thy wife!
3
What joyous consummation
Is union, Lord, with Thee!
As of Thee, like Thee, for Thee,
Thy spouse shall ever be!
Her love to Thine responsive
Doth satisfy Thy heart -
God's answer to Thy longings,
Thy like, Thy counterpart!
