1
O GRACIOUS God, Thy pleasure
Is in Thy Christ made known,
And tells the boundless measure
Of blessing for Thine own.
He has Thy presence entered,
As Man in heav'n is known;
In Him Thy glory's centred,
In Him Thy purpose shown.
2
And O what love is beaming
Refulgent in that face!
What blessèd light is streaming
From that most glorious place!
Both love and light proclaiming
What Thou, the Father, art,
And wondrous grace revealing,
With Thine own Son, our part.
3
Thou source of every blessing!
Thou spring of all delight!
Thy Name with joy confessing
Let all the saints unite!
Each heart it's praise outpouring
To Thee all praise above,
Each voice in strains adoring
Re-echoes - "God is love."

Miss C. Thompson (1822-1909)
