O mystery of love divine That thought and thanks




O mystery of love divine
That thought and thanks o’erpowers!
Lord Jesus, was our portion Thine,
And is Thy portion ours?


Emmanuel, didst
Thou take our place
To set us in Thine own?
Didst Thou our low estate embrace
To lift us to Thy throne?


Didst Thou fulfill
each righteous deed,
God’s perfect will express,
That we th’unfaithful
ones might plead
Thy perfect faithfulness?


For Thee the Father’s hidden face?
For Thee the bitter cry?
For us the Father’s endless grace,
The song of victory?


Our load of sin and misery
Didst Thou, the Sinless, bear?
Thy spotless robe of purity
Do we the sinners wear?


Lord Jesus, is it even so?
Have we been lovèd thus?
What love can we on Thee bestow
Who hast exchanged with us?


Thou, Who our
very place didst take,
Dwell in our very heart:
Thou, Who Thy portion
ours dost make,
Thyself, Thyself impart.
