WHAT GRACE, O LORD, AND BEAUTY SHONE

1.WHAT grace, O Lord, and beauty shone

Around Thy steps below; 

What patient love was seen 

In all Thy life and death of woe!


2.For ever on Thy burdened heart

A weight of sorrow hung, 

Yet no ungentle, murmuring word 

Escaped Thy silent tongue.

 

3.Thy foes might hate, despise, revile,

Thy friends unfaithful prove. 

Unwearied  in  forgiveness still, 

Thy heart could only love.


4.O give us hearts to love like Thee,

Like Thee, O Lord, to grieve

Far more for others' sins, than all

The  wrongs  that we receive.


5.One with Thyself, may every eye

In us, Thy brethren, see 

The gentleness and grace that 

Spring From union. Lord, with Thee.
