8.7.8.7.4.4.7. Iambic


1
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.
2
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!
3
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.
4
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
