8.7.8.7.8.7.8.7. Iambic


1
TO Thee, our God, we render now
Our willing adoration:
How great Thy counsels were of old
Before the world's foundation!
Rejoicing we discern Thy thoughts
Secured in fullest measure
In Christ and His companions - one -
For Thine eternal pleasure.
2
For Thou art glorified as God
By Him, the Man anointed -
Our Head, of whom are we, His like,
With Him our place appointed.
A blessèd Man amidst His own
With joy He sings Thy praises,
And in the Spirit's power we share
The holy song He raises.
3
We worship Thee as Head o'er all,
In holy splendour dwelling;
In greatness, wisdom, power divine
Our highest thoughts excelling!
Most blessèd is Thy sovereign will,
Thy love is all transcending;
Be glory in th'assembly Thine
Through ages never ending!
