Father Of Eternal Grace


Father of eternal grace,
Glorify Thyself in me:
Meekly, beaming in my face,
May the world Thine image see.

Happy only in Thy love,
Poor, unfriended, or unknown,
Fix my thoughts on things above,
Stay my heart on Thee alone.

Humble, holy, all-resign’d
To Thy will,–Thy will be done;
Give me, Lord, the perfect mind
Of Thy well-beloved Son.

Counting gain and glory loss,
May I tread the path He trod,
Die with Jesus on the cross,
Rise with Him to Thee, my God!
