Hymn 237 - "O love divine! which had its source,"


O Love divine! which had its source,

 Our blessed God, in Thee alone;

When time had fully run its course,

Thy Son came forth to make it known.


Sent forth from Thee, Thy words to speak,

Anointed, to fulfil Thy will;

Thy Holy One, alone, unique,

With great delight Thy heart did fill.


That fragrant life, in death's domain

Laid down, devoted to Thy will;

As Firstborn now He lives again,

With many sons Thy house to fill.


Father, we praise Thy glorious Name,

Knowing the joy that fills Thy heart,

To have us holy, without blame

In Him, our blest and endless part.
