Hymn Selection


O LORD, Thy face was set,
Set steadfastly,
Till God's full claims should yet
Accomplished be.
Where men God's rights withheld,
Thine offering excelled:
What odours choice He smelled,
So rich in Thee!
Yet onward still to go,
On to the cross;
Drink deep that cup of woe,
Of grief and loss.
All from Thee then did flee,
And on th'accurdèd tree
God his His face from Thee,
Truly alone!
Blessèd and glorious Man,
Thy lowly stoop
Compassed God's wondrous plan -
Redemption's scope.
All that God's holy mind
Has sought in man to find,
All that His love designed,
Secured by Thee!
