1. Thou, Lord, art Love: and ev'rywhere
Thy Name is brightly shown,
Beneath, on earth, Thy footstool fair,
Above, in heav'n, Thy throne.
2. Thy Word is love; in lines of gold
There mercy prints its trace;
In nature we Thy steps behold,
The gospel shows Thy face.
3. Thy ways are love; though they transcend
Our feeble range of sight,
They wind, through darkness, to their end
In everlasting light.
4. Thy thoughts are love; and Jesus is
The living voice they find:
His love lights up the vast abyss
Of the eternal Mind.
5. Thy chastisements are love; more deep
They stamp the seal divine,
And by a sweet compulsion keep
Our spirits nearer Thine.
6. Thy heav'n is the abode of Love:
O blessed Lord, that we
May there, when time's deep shades remove,
Be gathered home to Thee.
