Hymn Selection


GOD and Father, source of glory,
High above our praise art Thou;
Yet in Christ Thou hast declarèd
Love that makes our spirits bow.
From eternity 'twas purposed
Thou shouldst have this rich delight,
Hearts to swell Thy praise for ever,
Sons to worship in Thy sight.
Thou didst sanctify and send Him,
All Thy counsels to make good -
Him who knew Thine earnest longing,
And Thy feelings understood.
He no service thought to lowly,
And no sacrifice too great
To secure Thy plan so holy,
And its objects extricate.
Now Thy love has found its answer,
All Thy thoughts secured and sealed;
And the sons Thou hast been seeking
Their eternal tribute yield.

E. Carrèn, fr. Swedish
