Hymn/Song Information

We faintly hear we dimly see In




We faintly hear, we dimly see,
In differing phrase we pray,
But, dim or clear, we own in Thee
The Light, the Truth, the Way.


To do Thy will is more than praise,
As words are less than deeds,
And simple trust can find Thy ways
We miss with chart of creeds.


No pride of self Thy service hath,
No place for me and mine ;
Our human strength is weakness, death
Our life, apart from Thine.


Apart from Thee all gain is loss,
All labour vainly done,
The solemn shadow of Thy cross
Is better than the sun.


Our Friend, our Brother, and our Lord,
What may Thy service be?
Nor name, nor form, nor ritual word,
But simply following Thee.


The heart must ring Thy Christmas bells,
Thy inward altars raise ;
Its faith and hope Thy canticles,
And its obedience praise !
