O Lord, the knowledge of Thy love
Doth bow our hearts to Thee above;
Before Thy face we prostrate fall,
Whose wondrous glory shines for all.
We worship, praise Thee and adore,
Exalt Thy Name for evermore!
Thy church, Thy body and Thy bride,
With Thee, the Christ, identified -
Espoused to Thee, a virgin chaste,
While travelling still this dreary waste -
Finds in Thyself her hope, her all!
She waits to hear her bridegroom call.
He comes! The longed-for, glorious Lord,
Whose Name by all shall be adored!
He comes to take His bride on high,
To share to all eternity
The fruits of God's eternal plan,
Before the age of time began.
The heav'n and earth, the sea and land,
Display the pow'r of God's own hand,
And all His matchless moral ways
Redound for ever to His praise;
But in this glorious mystery
Unfathomable love we see.
I thought I'd share another of E.H. Chater's great hymns today.
