8.7.8.7.


1
LORD, Thy person far transcendeth
Creature mind to comprehend;
But in manhood's form Thou camest,
Theme of praise that ne'er shall end.
2
Here the Son, Thy Father loving,
Thou didst in His will delight;
Of His heart the Well-belovèd,
O how pleasing in His sight!
3
One in all eternal counsels,
Thoughts divine Thou hast made known,
That there should be men made like Thee -
Those whom Thou canst call Thine own.
4
Thus in holy, blest communion,
Known in bonds so full and deep,
Drawn together, Lord, so near Thee
Thou our hearts in love dost keep.
5
And, rejoicing in such favour,
Praise to Thee we gladly bring;
By the Spirit's power sustaièd,
Of Thy glory now we sing.

J.C. Tozer
