1 THOU grace divine, encircling all,
A soundless, shoreless sea!
Wherein at last our souls shall fall,
O love of God, most free!
2 When over dizzy steeps we go,
One soft hand blinds our eyes,
The other leads us safe and slow,
O love of God, most wise!
3 And though we turn us from thy face,
And wander wide and long,
Thou hold'st us still in thine embrace,
O love of God, most strong!
4 But not alone thy care we claim,
Our wayward steps to win;
We know thee by a dearer name,
O love of God within!
5 And filled and quickened by thy breath,
Our souls are strong and free
To rise o'er sin and fear and death,
O love of God, to thee!
