304 Iambic

LORD Jesus, 'tis our deepest joy
To contemplate Thy glory:
Who dwelt in light supremely bright,
But stooped to tell the story
Of love divine,
That e'er shall shine
In hearts which now adore Thee.
Equality in Godhead Thine,
Thou wouldst no reputation;
But take in grace a bondman's place,
In lowly incarnation.
O wondrous sight,
God's great delight,
Blest theme of adoration!
To Calv'ry's death Thy bless`d feet
Moved in humiliation;
Thy Father's will Thou wouldst fulfil,
Thy joy His revelation.
Endured the cross,
Sustained all lost,
God's love in declaration.
O Lord, we raise our song of praise,
Thy Name with joy confessing;
We wait the day when Thy blest sway
Shall fill the earth with blessing;
When all shall own
Thine is the throne,
God's glory thus expressing.

G.C. Pierse
