Hymn Selection


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.
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!
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!
