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, Holy Spirit, Father, Son,
coequal Three in One.
