7.6.7.6.7.6.7.6.


1
THOU art, O Lord, the centre
Of that vast world of bliss,
Where nought of sin can enter,
Where joy eternal is;
God's love that world pervadeth,
There Thou dost all things fill;
For Thou art Head, who suff'redst
God's counsels to fulfil.
2
All fullness of the Godhead,
Lord Jesus, dwells in Thee;
Thou rightly art exalted;
To Thee all glory be!
Above all heav'ns ascended,
Thou hast, O Lord, Thy seat;
Thou art the Head of all things,
In Thee we are complete.
3
Thou art our Head in glory,
In Thee our place we see;
Thy church, to Thee united,
Is ever one with Thee.
We hail Thee, Lord, ascended,
As Man now supreme;
Thy Person and Thy glories
Shall be our endless theme.
