10.10.10.10.


1
HOW great, O God, our portion in Thy love,
And with Thy Christ in Thine own realms above,
Before Thyself - our God - in perfect rest,
In Thine eternal presence ever blest!
2
O wondrous thought of Thine, that we should be
At home, O God, in all that suiteth Thee!
Where all is of and for Thyself alone,
And finds its glorious centre in Thy Son.
3
'Tis by the Father's gift that we are His,
That we may be with Him and where He is,
In whom Thou dost Thy precious thoughts unfold,
As in Himself Thy glory we behold.
4
Beholding it, we worship and adore!
The more we learn Thy love, we love the more!
"Thou art that God," adoring hearts exclaim,
And glory gladly render to Thy Name.

H.D'A. Champney
