Hymn Selection


WE sing to Thee, blest Fathger,
As moved by light divine
In realms of wondrous counsel,
Where Jesus' glories shine.
We praise with hearts adoring,
In heav'nly places blest;
Fruit of eternal purpose,
Where now in joy we rest.
We praise Thee, glorious Father,
As objects of Thy grace,
Who for Thine own heart's pleasure
Are now before Thy face:
Thy sons marked out for glory -
Known from eternity -
With Christ Thy Well-belovèd,
Object supreme to Thee.
Who else but Thee, O Father,
Could in Thine only Son
So bless us with Thy Spirit,
And have us for Thine own?
Soon shall we be for ever
With Christ in glory; then
We'll shine in His blest image
Eternally, Amen!

P. van den Berg, fr. Dutch
