Sing Unto the Lord

Love divine

This was my Grandpop’s favorite Hymn. It is fast becoming one of mine…

Love Divine
Love divine, all loves excelling-
Joy of heaven to earth come down;
Fix in us thy humble dwelling.
All thy faithful mercies crown!
Jesus, Thou art all compassion.
Pure unbounded love thou art.
Visit us with Thy salvation.
Enter every trembling heart.

Come almighty to deliver-
Let us all Thy life recieve.
Suddenly return and never,
never more Thy temples leave.
Thee we would be always blessing,
serve Thee as Thy hosts above.
Pray and praise Thee without ceasing.
Glory in Thy perfect love.

Finish, then, Thy new creation-
Pure and spotless let us be.
Let us see Thy great salvation
perfectly restored in Thee;
Changed from glory into glory,
till in heaven we take our place,
till we cast our crowns before Thee,
lost in wonder, love, and praise.

I’m working on a good tune to match these words.
