8.8.8.8.8.8.


1
OUR hearts delight in Christ, and long
Their glorious matter to declare.
Of Thee we make our loftier song,
We cannot from Thy praise forbear.
Our ready tongues make haste to sing
The glories of the heavn'ly King.
2
Fairer than all the earth-born race,
Perfect in comliness Thou art;
Repleneshed are Thy lips with grace,
And full of love Thy tender heart.
God ever blest! we bow the knee,
And own all fulness dwells in Thee.
3
Be Thou the object bright and fair
To fill and satisfy the heart;
Our hope to meet Thee in the air,
And nevermore from Thee to part;
So may we undistracted be
To follow, serve, and wait for Thee.

C. Wesley (v.3 G.W. Fraser)
