Hymn Selection


JERUSALEM, the holy,
Whose builder is her God,
Resplendent with His glory
Her shining spreads abroad;
Descending out of heaven
To fill with Christ in grace,
In blest administration,
As bride and wife, her place!
Jerusalem, eternal!
The city of Christ's God,
Thine origin celestial,
Thou art His blest abode;
Thy beauty all adorning
For Him whose bride thou art,
To fill with joy unfading,
With Christ, thine endless part!
O residence of glory!
God's tabernacle then,
Where He - O wondrous story -
Doth dwell so near to men;
Where new creation's splendour
Doth hold our raptured gaze,
Kept by the Spirit's power,
And moved by Christ to praise!
The Father, source of glory -
The Son, the centre blest -
The Spirit all pervading -
The Fulness pleased, at rest!
O God supreme, we bless Thee,
And praise Thy glorious Name
For of Thee, through Thee, for Thee
Are all things now, Amen.
