1 Lord, Thou on earth didst love Thine own,
Didst love them to the end;
O still from Thy celestial throne
Let gifts of love descend.

2 The love the Father bears to Thee,
His own eternal Son,
Fill all Thy saints, till all shall be
In pure affection one.

3 As Thou for us didst stoop so low,
Warmed by love’s holy flame,
So let our deeds of kindness flow
To all who bear Thy name.

4 One blessèd fellowship of love,
Thy living Church should stand,
Till, faultless, she at last above
Shall shine at Thy right hand.

5 O glorious day when she, the Bride,
With her dear Lord appears!
When robed in beauty at His side,
She shall forget her tears.
