53: BLEST God and Father, in Thy sightby Thomas Henry Reynolds (1830-1930)
1 BLEST God and Father, in Thy sight
We bow and own Thy grace;
We worship in Thy glorious light,
Which shines in Jesus' face.
2 The glories of His work we bring ---
Thee glorified we see;
His deep perfections gladly sing,
And tell them forth to Thee.
3 He fills Thy presence, fully known
To Thee alone His worth;
But in our hearts Thy light hath shone,
As sons of heavenly birth.
4 Lord Jesus Christ, we praise Thy name
In God the Father's ear;
And worship Thee, Thou holy Lamb,
Whose blood has brought us near.
