10.10.10.10.


1
OUR God and Father, we respond anew
To love in Christ revealed, and praise Thy Name.
He did Thy will; and, for the joy in view,
Endured the cross, despising all the shame.
2
He midst His brethren strikes the note of praise;
We hear His song, our hearts responsive swell;
And on this day when He His voice doth raise,
In spirit enter where we soon shall dwell.
3
Chosen in Him, Thy well-belovèd Son,
We have our part in joy before Thy face;
Predestined, ere this world had yet begun,
For that blest world, where all bespeaks Thy grace.
4
Sons loved and loving, who Thy house shall fill,
Our endless portion there in love to be;
Each with some trait of Him who loves so well,
For Thy delight and joy eternally.

A. Becker, fr. German
