God and Father, we adore You

Representative Text

1 God and Father, we adore You
for the Son, Your image bright,
in whom all Your holy nature
dawned on our once hopeless night.

2 Far from You our footsteps wandered
on dark paths of sin and shame
but our midnight turned to morning,
when the Lord of glory came.

3 Word incarnate, God revealing,
longed-for while dim ages ran,
Love Divine, we bow before You,
Son of God and Son of Man.

4 Let our life be new-created
ever-living Lord, in You,
till we wake with Your pure likeness,
when Your face in heaven we view;

5 Where the saints of all the ages,
where the martyrs, glorified,
clouds and darkness far beneath them,
in unending day abide.

6 God and Father, now we bless You
for the Son, Your image bright,
in whom all Your holy nature
dawns on our adoring sight.
