171: THY suffering love, Lord Jesusby G. A. Lucas
1 THY suffering love, Lord Jesus,
Our hearts delight to trace;
The love that sought and claimed us,
In strong yet tender grace.
2 We think of Thy devotion,
Thy blest obedience rare;
Thy holy, deep emotion,
Thy grief that none could share.
3 Thus to our hearts Thou speakest;
Blest Lord, we hear Thy voice;
We know its charm, its sweetness,
And in Thy love rejoice.
4 We wait the consummation
Of love's own work divine,
And now in adoration
We joy that we are Thine.
