274. Love Divine, All Praise Excelling

8.7.8.7.D.
by C. Wesley
1
Love divine, all praise excelling,
 
Joy of heaven, to earth come down,
 
Bless us with Thy rich indwelling,
 
All Thy faithful mercies crown!
 
Saviour, Thee we'd still be blessing,
 
Serve Thee here, as soon above;
 
Praise Thee, Saviour, without ceasing,
 
Glory in Thy dying love.
2
Firstfruits of Thy new creation—
 
Faithful, holy, may we be,
 
Joyful in Thy full salvation,
 
More and more conformed to Thee.
 
Changed from glory into glory,
 
Till in heaven we take our place,
 
Then to worship and adore Thee,
 
Lost in wonder, love and praise!
