Abba Father thus we call Thee




Abba, Father, thus we call Thee,
(Hallowed name!) from day to day.
'Tis Thy children's right to know Thee,
None but children, Abba say.
This high honour we inherit,
Thy free gift through Jesus' blood;
God the Spirit with our spirit
Witnesseth we're sons of God.


Abba's purpose gave us being
When in Christ, in that vast plan,
Abba chose the saints for glory
Long before the world began;
O what love the Father bore us!
O how precious in His sight!
When He gave the church to Jesus,
Jesus, His whole soul's delight!


Though our nature's fall in Adam
Seemed to shut us out from God,
Thus it was His counsel brought us
Nearer still through Jesus' blood;
For in Him we found redemption,
Grace and glory in the Son;
Oh! the height and depth of mercy!
Christ and we, through grace, are one.
