C.M.


1
BLEST Son of God, we worship Thee;
Thou lovest to draw near
To hearts that wait for Thee alone
And feel Thine absence here.
2
Thou camest in of old and all
The heav'nly hosts were stirred,
And now amidst Thine own Thy praise
Unceasingly is heard.
3
Thou hast a glory far beyond
The creature's power to tell,
Yet pleased to come, as lowly Man,
'Mid human hearts to dwell.
4
Thou hast come in on God's behalf
To crown His wondrous ways,
Firstborn of all to lead the throng
In His eternal praise.
5
We praise and worship as we see
Thy glory spread abroad,
And love that, giving all, secures
The universe for God.

S.M. Watson
