Hymn Selection



LORD Jesus, holy Lamb of God,
Who shed'st for us Thine own life-blood,
Come, teach us all Thy love - then pain
In life were sweet, and death were gain.
Take Thou our hearts, and let them be
For ever held, O Lord, for Thee.
Thy willing servants, let us wear
The seal of love for ever there.
How blest are they who still abide
Close sheltered by Thy watchful side,
Who life and strength from Thee receive,
And with Thee move, and in Thee live!
Ah, Lord, enlarge our scanty thought,
To know the wonders Thou hast wrought;
Unloose our stamm'ring tongues to tell
Thy love, immense, unsearchable!

N.L. Zinzendorf (1700-1760), fr. German
