7.6.7.6.7.6.7.6.


1
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.
2
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.
3
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
