1
LORD Jesus, in Thee we're rejoicing,
For Thou hast come near to us now,
Presenting Thyself in Thy glory,
Responding in worship we bow.
2
God's will in its vastness Thou lovedst
And camest as Man it to do,
Thy life was laid down in rare fragrance,
That Thou mightest take it anew.
3
And now Thou are there, the Beginning
Of all that shall be for God's rest,
And we, Lord, are with Thee as of Thee,
Embraced in a nearness most blest.

A.J. Gardiner
