Blest Father, infinite in grace, Source of eternal joy; Thou lead'st our hearts to that blest place Where rest's without alloy. There will Thy love find perfect rest, Where all around is bliss, And, filled with Thee, the constant mind Eternally is blest. Eternal love their portion is, Where love has found its rest; And, filled with Thee, the constant mind Eternally is blest. There Christ, the centre of the throng. Shall in His glory shine; But not an eye those hosts among But sees His glory Thine. The counsels too in all Thine own, Fulfilled by power divine, Spread wide the glory of Thy throne, Where all in glory shine. Yet deeper, if a calmer, joy The Father's love shall raise, And every heart find sweet employ In His eternal praise. Nor is its sweetness now unknown, Well proved in what it's done; Our Father's love with joy we own, Revealed in Christ the Son.
