Hymn 413 - "Love divine, all praise excelling,"


Love divine, all praise excelling,

Joy of heav'n to earth come down!

By Thy Spirit here indwelling,

All Thy faithful mercies crown!

Jesus, Lord, Thy full compassion—

Pure unbounded love Thou art—

And the joy of Thy salvation,

Enter every longing heart.



And Thou giv'st Thy Holy Spirit

That we might Thy life receive;

Suited praise through Him ascending,

He would ne'er His temple leave.

Thus, Lord, we would now be blessing,

Serve Thee here as soon above,

Praise Thee, Saviour, without ceasing,

Glory in Thy dying love. 




Firstfruits of things new-created,

Holy Spirit, may we be;

And beholding Christ exalted,

Even now transformed by Thee:

Changed from glory unto glory

Till in heav'n we take our place,

Worship full to render through Thee,

Filled with wonder, love and praise.
