The fulness of God
BEING of beings, God of love,
To thee our hearts we raise;
Thy all-sustaining power we prove,
And gladly sing thy praise.
2 Thine, wholly thine, we pant to be;
Our sacrifice receive:
Made, and preserved, and saved by thee,
To thee ourselves we give.
3 Heavenward our every wish aspires,
For all thy mercy’s store;
The sole return thy love requires,
Is that we ask for more.
4 For more we ask;
We open then our hearts t’ embrace thy will;
Turn, and revive us, Lord, again;
With all thy fulness fill.
5 Come, Holy Ghost, the Saviour's love
Shed in our hearts abroad;
So shall we ever live, and move,
And be, with Christ in God.
