Hymn/Song Information

O Lord in perfect bliss above Thou could




O Lord, in perfect bliss above
Thou couldst not need created love;
And yet. Thou didst Thy power display.
And earth's foundations firmly lay.


Things that were not, at Thy command
In perfect form before Thee stand:
And all to their Creator raise
A wondrous-harmony of praise,


But even while the world came forth
In all the beauty of its birth,
In Thy deep thought Thou didst behold
Another world of nobler mould.


For Thou didst will that Christ should name
A new creation by His Name;
Its seed the living word of grace
He scatters wide in every place;


Its home, when time shall be no more.
In heaven with Thee for evermore;
Accepted in Thy boundless love
To share His .throne and joy above.


O Father, bless, for they are Thine,
O Son, direct in love divine,
O Holy Ghost, with grace endue
The old creation and the new.
