Hymn/Song Information

Father Thy sovereign love has sought




Father, Thy sovereign
love has sought
Captives to sin,
gone far from Thee;
The work that Thine
own Son hath wrought,
Has brought us back
in peace and free.


And now as sons
before Thy face,
With joyful steps
the path we tread,
Which leads us on
to that blest place
Prepared for us
by Christ our Head.


Thou gav'st us,
in eternal love,
To Him to bring us
home to Thee,
Suited to Thine own
thought above,
As sons like Him,
with Him to be


In Thine own house.
There love divine
Fills the bright courts
with cloudless joy;
But 'tis the love
that made us Thine,
Fills all that house
without alloy.


O boundless grace
which fills with joy
Unmingled all that enter there!
God's nature, love without alloy,
Our hearts are given
e'en now to share.


God's righteousness
with glory bright,
Which with its radiance
fills that sphere,
E'en Christ, of God
the power and light,
Our title is that light to share.


O mind divine, so must it be
That glory all belongs to God:
O love divine, that did decree
We should be part,
through Jesus' blood.


O keep us,
love divine near Thee,
That we our nothingness
may know,
And ever to Thy glory be
Walking in faith while here below.
