6.6.6.5.6.6.6.5.


1
OUR blest God and Father,
To Thee we do homage -
How great is Thy purpose,
Thy counsel divine!
How patient Thy workings
In wisdom unfathomed,
In grace, rich, unmeasured -
The glory be Thine!
2
Thy wondrous outshining
Of Thy holy Person,
In love, deep, eternal,
Is filling our sight;
And finds now its answer
In those who approach Thee
Through Christ, by the Spirit,
For Thine own delight.
3
Thou hast now Thy portion
In sons who adore Thee,
At home in Thy presence,
Responsive and free;
And soon all the fam'lies,
On earth and in heaven,
Shall swell the vast chorus
Of worship to Thee.

J. Brewer
