1.O GOD of God, in whom combine, 
The heights and depths of love divine,
With thankful hearts to Thee we sing;
To Thee our longing souls aspire,
In fervent flames of strong desire;
Come, and Thy sacred unction bring.

2.O powerful Love, to Thee we bow;
Object of all our wishes Thou,
Our hearts are naked to Thine eye;
To Thee, who from the eternal throne
Cam'st emptied of Thy glory down,
For us to groan, to bleed, to die.

3.Grace we implore : when billows roll,
Grace is the anchor of the soul;
Grace  every  sickness  knows  to heal;
Grace can subdue each fond desire,
And patience In all pain inspire,
Howe'er rebellious nature swell.

4.Be heaven, e'en now, our soul's abode,
Hid be our life with Christ in God,
Our spirit, Lord, be one with Thine;
Let all our works in Thee be wrought,
And  filled  with  Thee  be  all  our thought,
Till in us Thy full likeness shine.
