[ From the German.]
I Eternal depth of love divine,
In Jesus, God with us, displayed,
How bright thy beaming glories shine!
How wide thy healing streams are spread!
2 With whom dost thou delight to dwell?
Sinners, a vile and thankless race:
O God! what tongue aright can tell
How vast thy love, how great thy grace?
3 The dictates of thy sovereign will
With joy our grateful hearts receive:
All thy delight in us fulfill:
Lo! all we are to thee we give.
4 To thy sure love, thy tender care,
Our flesh, soul, spirit, we resign:
O fix thy sacred presence there,
And seal th' abode for ever thine!
Trans, by J. Wesley.
58 Psalm xxxvi. 5-9. L. M.
I High in the heavens, eternal God,
Thy goodness in full glory shines:
Thy truth shall break through every cloud
'that veils and darkens thy designs.
2 Forever firm thy justice stands,
As mountains their foundations keep:
Wise are the wonders of thy hands:
Thy judgments are a mighty deep.
3 Thy providence is kind and large,
Both man and beast thy bounty share:
The whole creation is thy charge,
But saints are thy peculiar care.
4 My God! how excellent thy grace!
Whence all our hope and comfort springs:
The sons of Adam in distress
Fly to the shadow of thy wings.
5 Life, like a fountain, rich and free,
Springs from the presence of the Lord;
And in thy light our souls shall see
The glories promised in thy word.
58 b The Divine Comforter. L. M.
1 Come, O Creator Spirit blest!
And in our souls take up thy rest!
Come, with thy grace and heavenly aid,
To fill the hearts which thou hast made.
2 Great Comforter! to thee we cry;
() highest Gift of God most high!
O fount of life! () fire of love!
Send sweet anointing from above!
3 Kindle our senses from above,
And make our hearts o'erllow with love;
With patience firm, and virtue high,
The weakness of our flesh supply.
4 Far from us drive the foe we dread
And grant us thy true peace instead;
So shall we not, with thee for guide
Turn from the path of life aside
5 Oh, may thy grace on us bestow
The Father and the Son to know,
And thee through endless times confessed
Of both th' eternal Spirit blest.
