Father how precious unto Thee Is Thy




Father, how precious unto Thee
Is Thy beloved Son,
In whom Thou dost
perfection see,
Thy holy, blessed One!


When He in flesh
the desert passed,
He loved to do Thy will;
His food it was,
through to the last,
Thy pleasure to fulfil.


Only-begotten, He revealed
Thyself unto Thy praise:
The Father, until then concealed,
Was seen in all His ways.


As in His life, so in His death,
He was devoted still;
For us in love
resigned His breath,
Obedient to Thy will.


He glorified Thee on the earth:
Thy work by Him was done;
And Thou, who knewest
all His worth,
Didst glorify Thy Son.


Now crowned and seated
on Thy throne,
He is Thy joy and rest;
And we who are
through grace Thine own
In Him are fully blest.


He, preciousness itself to Thee,
To us is precious too;
We every beauty in Him see,
And Thine own glory view.
