Lyrics

Thee we praise, our God and Father,
Thou Thy love hast shown;
Ere the world was, Thou didst choose us
For Thine own.

Thou Thine only Son hast given,
Thou art glorified,
For, in love to bring us near Thee,
He has died.

By the Spirit now indwelling
We with Christ have part;
Father! we Thy sons now call Thee,
From our heart.

Love divine our present portion,
Heaven’s choicest store;
Thee we worship, God and Father,
Thee adore!

Soon in Thine own house around Thee
Still our praise shall swell;
Sons before Thee ever joying
We shall dwell.

For His praise who glorified Thee
We like Him shall be;
Firstborn He of many brethren
Praising Thee.
