11.10.11.10. Dactylic


1
"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
2
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.
3
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
