1
OUR God, from Thy blest heart and mind has spread
The heav'nly light of wisdom all divine,
That we might know in Christ, our living Head,
That which shall e'er all other light outshine.
2
And wider still, that to the powers above,
Through the assembly, might be now made known
All-various wisdom of the searchless love,
That yet shall bind the universe in one.
3
Before Thee, Father, we would bow our knees,
That, strengthened by Thy Spirit, Christ may dewll
Within our hearts; and by the love that sees
That all-divine domain, Thy praise we tell.
4
O love well-known, surpassing all our thought,
Love of the Christ, the climax of all good!
Into eternal sunshine we are brought,
Filled unto all the fullness of our God.

J. Pellatt
