1 Within the Father's house
The Son has found his home,
And to his temple suddenly
The Lord of life has come.
2 The doctors of the Law
Gaze on the wondrous child
And marvel at his gracious words
Of wisdom undefiled.
3 Yet not to them is giv'n
The mighty truth to know,
To lift the earthly veil which hides
Incarnate God below.
4 The secret of the Lord
Escapes each human eye,
And faithful pond'ring hearts await
The full epiphany.
5 Lord, enter now our souls
And teach us by your grace
Each dim revealing of yourself
With loving awe to trace
6 Till we behold your face
And know as we are known
You, Father, Son, and Holy ghost,
Coequal Three in One.
