Hymn/Song Information

Humbly I adore thee Verity unseen




Humbly I adore thee,
Verity unseen,
who thy glory hidest
Ďneath these shadows mean;
lo, to thee surrendered,
my whole heart is bowed,
tranced as it beholds thee,
shrined within the cloud.


Taste and touch and vision
to discern thee fail;
faith, that comes by hearing,
pierces through the veil.
I believe whateíer
the Son of God hath told;
what the Truth hath spoken,
that for truth I hold.


O memorial wondrous
of the Lordís own death;
living Bread that givest all
they creatures breath,
grant my spirit ever by
thy life may live,
to my taste thy sweetness
never failing give.


Jesus, whom now hidden,
I by faith behold,
what my soul doth long for,
that thy word foretold;
face to face thy splendor,
I at last shall see,
in the glorious vision,
blessed Lord, of thee.


The Fatherís splendor clothes
the Son with life.
The Spiritís power
shakes the Church of God.
Baptized we live with God
the Three in One.
Alleluia!


A new creation comes to life
and grows
as Christís new body
takes on flesh and blood.
The universe restored
and whole will sing:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Amen.
