456 Iambic

OUR God, we bless Thee for Thy love
Made manifest in Jesus;
We praise Thy Name, that by His death
Thy love from bondage frees us.
The darkness and the distance gone,
No longer room for sadness;
Love's disposition now made known,
Thy saints are filled with gladness.
Thine attributes, O God, are seen
In Jesus crowned with glory,
And in our hearts Thy praises ring
As with Him now before Thee.
A people formed to show Thy praise,
For every tongue and nation,
Rest, in the nearness of Thy love,
In covenant relation.
Thy willing people, formed in love
From which no power shall sever,
With great delight, with holy hands,
We'd serve Thee thus for ever.
