L.M.


1
FATHER, Thy sovereign love has sought
Captives to sin, gone far from Thee;
The work that Thine own Son hath wrought
Has brought us back in peace, and free.
2
And now, as sons before Thy face,
With joyful steps the path we tread,
Which leads us on to that blest place
Prepared for us by Christ our Head.
3
O keep us, Love divine, near Thee,
That we our nothingness mayknow,
And ever to Thy glory be
Walking in faith while here below.

J.N. Darby
