Thee We Praise, Our God And Father

Full Text

1 Thee we praise, our God and Father,
Thou Thy love hast shown;
Ere the world was, Thou didst choose us
For Thine own.

2 Thou Thine only Son hast given,
Thou art glorified,
For, in love to bring us near Thee,
He has died.

3 By the Spirit now indwelling
We with Christ have part;
Father! we Thy sons now call Thee,
From our heart.

4 Love divine our present portion,
Heaven’s choicest store;
Thee we worship, God and Father,
Thee adore!

5 Soon in Thine own house around Thee
Still our praise shall swell;
Sons before Thee ever joying
We shall dwell.

6 For His praise who glorified Thee
We like Him shall be;
Firstborn He of many brethren
Praising Thee.
