Hymn Selection

129 Dactylic

"THOU art that God" to the ages eternal,
Loved and adored by blest myriads of men!
Feeling the warmth of affections paternal,
Fam'lies predestined shall fill earth and heav'n
Strengthened with might by the Father's own Spirit,
We now by faith hold the Christ in our heart;
Thus apprehending a sphere vast, yet finite,
Love of the Christ passing knowledge our part.
Thou canst, O God, even fill to Thy fulness
Hearts which are stirred by this wonderful theme;
In the assembly, now blest in Christ Jesus,
Be to Thee endlessly glory supreme!

A.P. Bodman
