Hymn/Song Information

And didst Thou love the race that loved




And didst Thou love the race
that loved not Thee?
And didst Thou take to Heaven
a human brow?
Dost plead with man’s voice
by the marvelous sea?
Art Thou his Kinsman now?


O God, O Kinsman loved,
but not enough,
O Man, with eyes
majestic after death,
Whose feet have toiled
along our pathways rough,
Whose lips drawn human breath!


By that one likeness
which is ours and Thine,
By that one nature
which doth hold us kin,
By that high Heaven where,
sinless, Thou dost shine
To draw us sinners in;


By Thy last silence
in the judgment hall,
By long foreknowledge
of the deadly tree,
By darkness, by the wormwood
and the gall,
I pray Thee visit me.


Come, lest this heart should,
cold and cast away,
Die ere the Guest adored
she entertain—
Lest eyes which never saw
Thine earthly day
Should miss Thy heavenly reign.
