195: WORTHY of homage and of praiseby Miss F. T. Wigram (19th Century)
1 WORTHY of homage and of praise;
Worthy by all to be adored:
Exhaustless theme of heavenly lays!
Thou, Thou art worthy, Jesus, Lord.
2 To Thee, e'en now, our song we raise,
Though sure the tribute mean must prove:
No mortal tongue can tell Thy ways,
So full of life, and light, and love.
3 Yet, Saviour, Thou shalt have full praise;
We soon shall meet Thee on the cloud;
We soon shall see Thee face to face,
In glory praising as we would.
