6.4.6.4.6.6.6.4.


1
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!
2
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!
3
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!

L.G. Milner
