8.7.8.7.4.7.


1
FATHER, 'twas Thy love that knew us
Earth's foundation long before;
That same love to Jesus drew us
By its sweet constraining power,
And hath made us
Sons before Thee evermore.
2
Now that changeless love enfolds us,
All its wealth on us bestows;
While its power unchanging holds us
In a holy calm repose.
God and Father,
Unto Thee our worship flows.

J.G Deck* (1807-1884)
