Hymn 474 - "O Lord, the joy union,"


O Lord, the joy of union,

And Thine embrace, call forth

Our full appreciation

Of Thy surpassing worth.


Thy wife, with Thee in nearness,

Adds lustre to the scene

Where all Thy power and greatness

In headship's place are seen.


Th' assembly, Lord, Thy body,

As joined to Thee above,

Responds with deep affection—

At rest in Thy great love.


Thus in this blest relation,

With one harmonious strain

We join with adoration,

Thy praises to proclaim.
