8.7.8.7.


1
O THE wondrous joy of dwelling
Father, in Thy house above!
Every feature Christ reflecting,
And Thine own surpassing love.
2
Thoughts divine conceived in purpose,
There fulfilled for Thy delight;
All that shone in Christ, once humbled,
There expands in glory's light.
3
By the Spirit's power is strengthened
Every eye on Him to gaze;
Every view of Him unfolding
Wakes fresh bursts of joyful praise!
4
Every circle gathered round Thee
Yields of Christ some beauteous ray;
And for Thy delight and pleasure
Shines throughout th' eternal day.
5
There Thy love o'er all transcendent
Shall for ever find its rest;
While each heart, its joy outpouring,
Inn that love is ever blest.

H.P. Wells
