7s.
by T. Kelly
1
Lord, accept our feeble song!
 
Power and praise to Thee belong;
 
We would all Thy grace record,
 
Holy, holy, holy Lord!
1 Peter 2:9; Revelation 4:11; Matthew 28:18; Ephesians 1:6; Revelation 4:8
2
Rich in glory, Thou didst stoop,
 
Thence is all Thy people's hope;
 
Thou wast poor, that we might be
 
Rich in glory, Lord, with Thee.
2 Corinthians 8:9
3
When we think of love like this,
 
Joy and shame our hearts possess;
 
Joy, that Thou couldst pity thus;
 
Shame, for such returns from us.
Psalm 103:13
4
Yet we hope the day to see
 
When, from every hindrance free,
 
When to Thee, in glory, brought,
 
We shall serve Thee as we ought.
2 Corinthians 5:4; Revelation 22:3
