78. Love divine, all loves excelling

  1. Love divine, all loves excelling,

    Joy of heaven, to earth come down;

    Making us Thy humble dwelling,

    All Thy faithful mercies crown.

    Jesus, Thou art all compassion;

    Pure, unbounded love Thou art;

    Visit us with Thy affection,

    Enter every longing heart.

  2. Come, Almighty to deliver!

    Let us all Thy grace receive.

    Follow in Thy steps and never,

    Nevermore the pathway leave;

    Then our hearts will yield their blessing,

    Sweet incense to God above,

    Offer praises without ceasing,

    Glory in Thy perfect love.

  3. Firstfruits of Thy new creation,

    Faithful, holy, may we be,

    Joyful in Thy great salvation,

    Daily more conformed to Thee;

    Changed from glory into glory,

    Till in heaven we take our place,

    Then to worship, and adore Thee,

    Lost in wonder, love, and praise.
