PRECIOUSNESS OF CHRIST




Be love, delightful theme!
The burden of my song;
The love of Christ inflames my heart,
Let praise command my tongue.


His condescending grace
My hourly thoughts employs;
Hes the foundation of my hope,
The summit of my joys.


His voice delights my ear,
His presence cheers my mind;
More than the universe affords,
In him alone I find.


Meekness and majesty
At once in him appear;
Ten thousand suns are not so bright,
Nor heaven itself so dear.


How precious on the cross,
How glorious on the throne!
All things would I account but loss,
To know and make him known.


Encircled in his arms,
I am completely blest;
He is my safety and delight,
And my eternal rest.
