7.6.7.6.7.6.7.6.


1
O BLESS√ąD God, we praise Thee,
In wisom hast Thou planned
A universe of glory,
Beyond the changing sand
Of time - where men, immortal,
Should dwell in radiant light;
And creature with Creator,
In Thine own realm delight.
2
From out those mighty counsels
What treasures have been shown!
Thy choicest thoughts in purpose,
Before the worlds were known -
That we, in Christ, before Thee,
Should share the Son's blest place;
Enjoy, in cloudless favour,
The riches of Thy grace.
3
And soon this sonship glory -
Secured in wisdom's way -
Shall be our endless portion
In that eternal day.
So gladly now responsive
Our voices we would raise;
Blest Father, Son and Spirit
To Thee be endless praise!
