1
GLORIOUS Lord, in adoration
We before Thee lowly bow,
In the blessèd contemplation
Of Thy holy Person now.
Thou, imparting joy and rest,
Dost Thyself now manifest.
2
Thee we rev'rence as Creator,
Thy redemption's rights acclaim;
Than Thy works supremely greater,
From eternity, the Same;
Thee we worship, Thou art "HE",
Godhead fulness dwells in Thee.
3
Now, as looking on Thy glory,
We Thy stoop in manhood trace;
And, transformed as thus before Thee,
See Thee in the Firstborn's place:
Glorious Man, by us adored,
Of Thee, like Thee, for Thee, Lord!

R. Stott
