Representative Text

1 God of mercy, God of love,
All Thy wondrous works approve
Thy own goodness, and reveal
What our ransomed spirits feel,
That Thy name, in heav’n above

2 God of glory, in us shine,
Soul and body, we are Thine;
God of wisdom, love, and might,
Be our strength and burning light;
God of peace and holiness,
Let Thy beauty be on us.

3 God, within us be Thy throne;
In the meekness of Thy Son,
Pure and spotless, filled with peace,
We shall rise to see Thy face—
See Thee in Thy majesty,
Blest through all eternity.
