Thou hidden love of God Whose height Whose depth




Thou hidden love of God, whose height,
Whose depth unfathomed, no man knows,
How beauteous seems thy distant light,
In which admiring saints repose;
Onward I strive, nor can I be
At rest until I rest in thee.


Thy secret voice invites me still
The sweetness of thy yoke to prove;
And fain I would; but though my will
Seem fixed, yet wide my passions rove;
Yet hindrances strew all the way;
I aim at thee, yet thee astray.


‘Tis mercy all, that thou hast brought
My mind to seek her peace in thee:
Yet, while I seek, but find thee not,
No peace my wanderings soul shall see.
O when shall all my wanderings end.


Is there a thing beneath the sun
That strives with thee my heart to share?
Lord, tear it thence, and reign alone,
Sovereign of every motion there;
Grant me from earthly idols free,
To find my chief delight in thee.


Each moment draw from earth away
My heart, that lowly waits thy call;
Speak to my inmost soul, and say,
“I am thy Life, thy God, thy All:”
To know thee, love thee, feel thee nigh,
Be this my everlasting joy.
