Representative Text

1 Lord, we come in gladness to adore Thee,
Triumph swells in every heart before Thee,
For our Saviour and His wondrous glory,
At Thy feet, O Jesus! we adore.

Refrain:
While Thy praises this glad hour resounding
Thrill our hearts, with “grace for grace” abounding,
And we have th’almighty arm surrounding,
Let Thy love steal all our spirits o’er.

2 Christ, the powers of evil did enfold Thee,
But, though strong and dread, they could not hold Thee,
Of Thy strength the half has ne’er been told me,
Let me see Thee clearer, I implore. [Refrain]

3 For Thy love, O God, in Jesus sending,
Thy great love to us in Him commending,
Wondrous power in death’s dark barriers rending,
Thee we love, yea, love Thee more and more. [Refrain]
