Hymn 2 - "Father `twas Thy love that knew us"


FATHER, 'twas Thy love that knew us

 Earth's foundation long before;

That same love to Jesus drew us

By its sweet constraining power,

And hath made us

Sons before Thee evermore.


Now that changeless love enfolds us,

All its wealth on us bestows;

While its power unchanging holds us

In a holy calm repose.

God and Father,

Unto Thee our worship flows.
