8.5.8.5.


1
FATHER, in Thy love unbounded,
Thou hast called us sons;
Chosen ere the world was founded,
Thy belovèd ones.
2
Thine own Son, the joy of heaven,
In Thy bosom dwells;
Grace on grace so richly given,
All Thy favour tells.
3
Freely rests Thy love upon Him,
Thy belovèd One;
And with joy we now acclaim Him,
Jesus Christ, the Son.
4
Thus Thy purpose great, unchanging,
Perfected we see;
Through Thy counsel, Thine arranging,
Praise ascends to Thee.
5
O Thy love! Its wonderous story
Stirs our hearts to song;
Worship, honour, praise and glory
All to Thee belong!

Mrs. S. Hedman, fr. Swedish
