1
FATHER, now in adoration
Rev'rently we sing to Thee;
Thy surpremacy discerning
In love's blest economy.
Glorious Thou in revelation,
Greatness over all Thy part;
Object of eternal worship
By Thy many sons Thou art.
2
Thou dost work all things according
To the counsel of Thy will;
Blessing us in the Beloveèd,
Causing praise Thine ear to fill.
Wider still Thy blessing floweth,
Every family named of Thee,
Thou, the Source of all, Father,
Giving all in life to be.
3
By the Spirit we adore Thee,
In the Son to us made known;
Joying in Thy love and favour,
In Thy grace and goodness shown.
Blessèd is Thy holy presence,
Portion of the saints in light;
Unto Thee be ever glory,
Worship, honour, praise and might!
