7.6.7.6.


1
O LORD, Thy matchless glory,
Has stirred in every heart
A longing now to yield Thee
Thine own most treasured part.
2
And thus the answering praises
Of myriads sanctified
All merge in perfect oneness,
Responding as Thy bride.
3
This joy Thou long hast waited,
But now with raptured gaze
Thy bride adoring greets Thee,
Her lips employed with praise.
4
All fair art Thou, Lord Jesus,
Th' assembly too all fair;
Now held in nearness to Thee,
And wholly restful there.
5
O wondrous is God's purpose!
As man Thou hast a bride,
One with Thee now in glory,
And Thou art satisfied.
