189: O GOD of matchless graceby Miss Hannah Kilham Burlingham (1842-1901)
1 O GOD of matchless grace,
We sing unto Thy name;
We stand accepted in the place
That none but Christ could claim;
Our willing hearts have heard Thy voice,
And in Thy mercy we rejoice.
2 'Tis meet that Thy delight
Should centre in the Son,
That Thou shouldst place us in Thy sight
In Him, Thy Holy One;
Thy perfect love has cast out fear;
Thy favour shines upon us here.
3 Eternal is our rest,
O Christ of God, in Thee;
Now of Thy peace, Thy joy, possessed,
We wait Thy face to see;
Now to the Father's heart received,
We know in whom we have believed.
