87. [Maker, in whom we live]

4 Eternal, Triune God,
let all above,
record and dwell upon thy love.
When heaven and earth are fled
before thy face,
sing all thy love hath made
thine everlasting praise.

4 Crown him the Lord of love;
behold his side,
those wounds in beauty glorified.
All hail, Redeemer!
Thou hast died for me;
thy praise shall never fail
throughout eternity.

4 My will is not my own
till thou make it thine;
a crown, it must its crown resign.
It only stands unbent
amid the strife,
when on thy bosom leant,
and found in thee its life.
