Hymn 87 - "Father, Thy sovereign love has sought"


Father, Thy   sovereign love has sought

Captives to sin, gone far from Thee;

Thework thatThineownSon hath wrought

Has brought us back in peace, and free.



And now, as sons before Thy face,

With joyful steps the path we tread,

Which leads us on to that blest place

Prepared for us by Christ our Head.



O keep us, Love divine, near Thee,

That we our nothingness may know,

And ever to Thy glory be

Walking in faith while here below.
