175. I will love the Lord; for He

I will love the Lord; for He
From eternity loved me;
I will love the Lord, who gave
His own Son my soul to save,
And sends down, in love divine,
His good Spirit to strive with mine.

I will love the Son; for He
Loved, and gave Himself for me;
I will love Him on his cross,
And for Him count all things loss;
I will love Him on his throne,
When I know as I am known.

I will love the Spirit; for He
Deigns in love to dwell with me;
I will love Him on my knees,
Helping mine infirmities,
Till my joyful lips record
"Abba, Father!" "Jesus, Lord!"

Thee, o'er all for ever blest,
One, true, only God confest,
I would love, with heart and mind,
Soul and strength;--but what can bind,
O my God! my love to thee!
This alone, Thy love to me.
