Hymn/Song Information

To you was given O saint beloved




To you was given, O saint beloved,
A vision of Christ's glory
Before he lived his earthly life
Begun with Christmas story:
The glory of the Son of God
Before the world's creation,
In whom all things that are were made
And have their consummation.


In you he found his closest friend,
A friend though frail and mortal,
Whose love so pure
gave sight so sure
It pierced beyond heaven's portal:
So to the world you witness gave,
With prophet's eye descrying
The life of grace and fellowship,
The life in God undying.


O love of God that overflowed
In glories of creation!
O crowning glory of all life
In wondrous Incarnation!
All praise to God
whose saint and seer
Declared the love excelling
Now shed abroad in faithful hearts,
Abounding and indwelling.
