8.5.8.3.


1
THEE we praise, our God and Father,
Thou Thy love hast shown;
Ere the world was, Thou didst choose us
For Thine own.
2
Thou Thine only Son hast given,
Thou art glorified,
For, in love to bring us near Thee,
He has died.
3
By the Spirit now indwelling
We with Christ have part;
Father! we Thy sons now call Thee,
From our heart.
4
Love divine our present portion,
Heaven's choicest store;
Thee we worship, God and Father,
Thee adore!
5
Soon in Thine own house around Thee
Still our praise shall swell;
Sons before Thee ever joying
We shall dwell.
6
For His praise who glorified Thee
We like Him shall be;
Firstborn he of many brethren
Praising Thee.

I. Fleming
