310: SON of God, in heaven we view Theeby Charles Andrew Coates (1862-1945)
1 SON of God, in heaven we view Thee
Of God's love the Object meet;
While, Lord Jesus Christ, 'tis through Thee
All our blessing is complete.
2 As Thy brethren we surround Thee,
Firstborn of a heavenly race;
He who has with glory crowned Thee
Called us to this blessed place.
3 From the triumph and the glory
Of Thy rest in love divine,
Comes to us the wondrous story,
How God's purpose made us Thine;
4 How by dying Thou hast freed us
From the man of sin and shame,
That, unhindered, Thou might'st lead us
Now to know Thy Father's name.
5 And responsive to Thy longing,
We would now abide in love;
Know Thy joy, as those belonging
To Thyself in heaven above.
