1
BLEST Father of glory, we worship,
Thy greatness surpasses our praise;
We bless Thee, Thy Spirit within us
Gives power to these heavenly lays.
2
We think of the Man in Thy presence,
Set down here, exalted as Head;
Once raised by the might of Thy power,
When numbered along with the dead.
3
We think of the glory that chose us,
'Twas Thine, blessèd Father, the Source;
The glory of love that redeemed us,
Through Jesus, the Man of Thy choice.
4
As marked our beforehand for sonship,
We praise now the glory of grace
And bow in Thy presence and worship,
As conscious, in Christ, of our place.
