L.M.


1
THOU gav'st us, Father, in Thy love,
To Christ to bring us home to Thee,
Suited to Thine own thoughts above,
As sons like Him, with Him to be
2
In Thine own house. There love divine
Fills the bright courts with cloudless joy;
But 'tis the love that made us Thine
Fills all that house without alloy.
3
O boundless grace! What fills with joy
Unmingles all that enter there,
God's nature, love without allow,
Our hearts are giv'n e'en now to share.
4
God's rightiousness with glory bright,
Which with its radiance fills that sphere -
E'en Christ, of God the pwer and light -
Our title is that light to share.
5
O mind divine, so must it be
That glory all belongs to God!
O Love divine, that did decree
We should be part, through Jesus' blood.

J.N. Darby
