235

S.M.


1
WE'LL praise Thee, glorious Lord,
Who died to set us free;
No earthly songs can joy afford
Like heav'nly melody.
2
Love that no suff'ring stayed
We'll praise - true love divine;
Love that for us atonement made,
Love that had made us Thine.
3
Love in Thy lonely life
Of sorrow here below;
Thy words of grace, with mercy rife,
Make grateful praises flow.
4
Love, that on death's dark vale
In sweetest odours spread,
Where sin oe'er all seemed to prevail,
Redemption's glory shed.
5
And now we see Thee ris'n,
Who once for us hast died,
Seated above the highest heav'n:
The Father's Glorified.
6
Soon wilt Thou take Thy throne,
The foes Thy footstool made,
And bring us with Thee as Thine own,
In glory love displayed.
7
Jesus, we wait for Thee,
With Thee to have our part;
What can full joy and blessing be
But being where Thou art!

J.N. Darby
