MHB449&450: NOW let us see thy beauty oh Lord

MHB 450
1.NOW let us see Thy beauty. Lord,
As we have seen before;
And by Thy beauty quicken us
To love Thee and adore.

2.'TIs easy when with simple mind
Thy loveliness we see,
To consecrate ourselves afresh
To duty and to Thee.

3.Our every feverish mood is cooled,
And gone is every load,
When we can lose the love of self,
And find the love of God.

4.TIs by Thy loveliness we're won
To home and Thee again,
And as we are Thy children true
We are more truly men.

5.Lord, It is coming to ourselves
When thus we come to Thee;
The bondage of Thy loveliness
Is perfect liberty.

6.So now we come to ask again
What Thou hast often given,
The vision of that loveliness
Which is the life of heaven.

MHB 449

1.LORD,enlarge    our    scanty thought
To know the wonders Thou hast wrought;
Unloose our stammering tongues,
to tell Thy love immense, unsearchable.

2.What are our works but sin and death,
Till Thou Thy quickening  Spirit breathe;
Thou giv'st the power Thy grace to move :
O wondrous  grace!   O boundless love

3.How can it be, Thou heavenly King,
That  Thou shouldst us to  glory bring;
Make slaves the partners of Thy throne,
Decked with a never-fading crown?

4.Hence our hearts melt, our eyes
o'erflow, Our words are lost;
nor will we know, Nor will
we think of aught beside,
My Lord, my Love Is crucified

5.FIRST-born of many brethren Thou;
TO Thee, lo I all our souls we bow;
Thee our hearts and hands we give :
Thine may we die. Thine may we live
   Amen.
