Eternal Father, unto Thee we raise
Our gladsome song, tho’ impotent we be,
And truly feebleness our song displays,
Tho’ unto Thee we gladly bend the knee.
Thou art so marvellous in our creature sight
We tell abroad the glory of Thy might.
And Thou hast called us in Thy grace divine,
And met us with a love that knows no end,
Thou hast, Almighty Father, made us Thine,
And proved Thyself to be the sinner’s Friend.
We bless Thee Thou hast shown Thy great delight
In leading sons to worship in Thy sight
Thou art our Father, we are now Thine own,
As in a Father we rejoice in Thee,
The Love so great that Thou to us hast shown
Calls us to bend before Thy face the knee. Thine,
Thine we are, yea, Thine for evermore,
And Father, Thy compassions we adore.
Thou lov’st to have us thus before Thy face,
And therefore hast Thou brought us to Thee nigh,
And given to us as sons an endless place
And we rejoice with everlasting joy.
The morning comes, the night shall soon be gone,
The Star of morn shall bring an endless dawn.
We wait that day, it shall not tarry long,
Eternal day shall quickly usher in,
The good shall take the place of cruel wrong
For good the battle in the end shall win.
And righteousness shall reign, for Christ shall bring
This evil world in bondage to the King.
