Hymn/Song Information

O the wondrous joy of dwelling Father




Oh, the wondrous joy of dwelling
Father, in Thy house above!
Every feature Christ reflecting,
And Thine own surpassing love.


Thoughts divine
conceived in purpose,
There fulfilled for Thy delight;
All that shone in Christ,
once humbled,
There expands in glory's light.


By the Spirit's power
is strengthened
Every eye on Him to gaze;
Every view of Him unfolding
Wakes fresh bursts of joyful praise!


Every circle gathered round Thee
Yields of Christ some beauteous ray;
And for Thy delight and pleasure
Shines throughout the eternal day.


There Thy love o'er all transcendent
Shall for ever find its rest;
While each heart, its joy outpouring,
In that love is ever blest.
