L.M.


1
BLEST God and Father, source of joy
For all Thine own in sonship's place,
Our songs of praise arise to Thee -
We worship now before Thy face.
2
Thy Spirit doth our hearts sustain,
As we through Christ are near to Thee;
Thy holy love fills every heart,
And in Thy presence blest are we.
3
Thou in Thy wondrous love hast planned
That we with Christ should have our part,
And share that home of glory bright
With Him who fills with joy Thy heart.
4
O blessèd home, where Thou dost dwell
In holy love and glory bright!
Near Thee, Thy love rests on us now,
And we in Christ are Thy delight.
5
Blest in Thy presence - glorious place -
With joy we hymn Thyself on high,
O God of love, our song we raise,
And "Father" by the Spirit cry.
