63: SON of God! with joy we praise Theeby Samuel Prideaux Tregelles (1813-1875)
1 SON of God! with joy we praise Thee,
On the Father's throne above;
All Thy wondrous work displays Thee,
Full of grace and full of love!
Lord, accept our adoration ---
For our sins Thou once wast slain;
Through Thy blood we have salvation,
Soon shall share Thine endless reign.
2 God, in Thee His love unfolding,
Shows how vast, how rich His grace;
Blest our lot, with joy beholding
All His glory in Thy face.
Oh! the mercy which hath blessed us,
Purposed thus ere time began,
Mercy which in Thee hath kept us,
Mercy vast, like heaven's span.
