Hymn Selection

26

C.M.


1
FATHER, Thy love our portion is,
As sons, like Christ, with Thee;
O who can tell of love like this,
So sovereign, full and free?
2
His Father Thou, and ours through grace,
We taste the same delight;
Blest in the brightness of Thy face,
In heav'n's unclouded light.
3
Unchanging glory fills the place
Where Jesus dwells on high,
But brighter joy our spirits trace
With Him, for ever nigh!
4
Eternal ages shall declare
The riches of Thy grace,
To those who with Thy Son shall share
A son's eternal place.
5
Father, Thy love, the source of all,
Sweeter than all it gives,
Shines on us now without recall,
And lasts while Jesus lives.
6
We joy in Thee, Thy holy love
Our endless portion is -
Like Thine own Son, with Him above,
In brightest heav'nly bliss.

J.N. Darby
