Love divine, all loves excelling

Hymns #242

1) Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of heaven, to earth come down;
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling,
All Thy faithful mercies crown.

Jesus, Thou art all compassion,
Pure unbounded love Thou art;
Visit us with Thy salvation,
Enter every longing heart!

2) Breathe, oh, breathe Thy loving Spirit,
Into every troubled breast!
Let us all in Thee inherit,
Let us find Thy promised rest.

Come, Almighty to deliver!
Let us all Thy grace receive;
Suddenly return, and never,
Never more Thy temples leave.

3) Finish, then, Thy new creation,
Pure and spotless may we be;
Let us see our whole salvation
Perfectly secured by Thee:

Changed from glory into glory,
Till in heaven we take our place;
Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise !
