Hymn Selection


FATHER, Thy love was deepest joy
To Christ when here below:
He came to earth (what blest employ!)
That we this love might know.
Thy Name by Him has been declared,
And His own place by us is shared.
The lustre of His love, in death
Shone forth in glory rare -
Then to impart the living Breath,
That we His peace might share.
He now delights with us to raise
A song of triumph and of praise.
He bringeth us to this blest place
Where we with Him can sing;
Where many sons - surpassing grace -
Eternal praises bring.
On us shines favour ne'er to dim -
The love wherewith Thou lovest Him!
