Verse 1

God and Father, we adore thee
For the Son, thine image bright,
In whom all thy holy nature
Dawned on our once hopeless night.

Verse 2

Far from thee our footsteps wandered,
On dark paths of sin and shame;
But our midnight turned to morning,
When the Lord of Glory came.

Verse 3

Word Incarnate, God revealing,
Longed- for while dim ages ran,
Love Divine, we bow before thee,
Son of God and Son of Man.

Verse 4

Let our life be new created,
Ever-living Lord, in thee,
Till we wake with thy pure likeness,
When thy face in heaven we see;

Verse 5

Where the saints of all the ages,
Where our fathers glorified,
Clouds and darkness far beneath them,
In unending day abide.

Verse 6

God and Father, now we bless thee
For the Son, thine image bright,
In whom all thy holy nature
Dawns on our adoring sight.
