LYRICS

Love divine, all loves excelling, joy of heaven, to earth come down,
fix in us thy humble dwelling, all thy faithful mercies crown.

Breathe, oh, breathe thy loving Spirit into every troubled breast;
let us all in thee inherit; let us find the promised rest.
Take away the bent to sinning; Alpha and Omega be;
end of faith, as its beginning, set our hearts to liberty.

Come, Almighty, to deliver, let us all thy life receive;
suddenly return, and never, nevermore thy temples leave.
Jesus, thou art all compassion, pure, unbounded love thou art;
visit us with thy salvation; enter every trembling heart.

Finish, then, thy new creation; pure and spotless let us be;
let us see thy great salvation perfectly restored in thee:
changed from glory into glory, till in heaven we take our place,
till we cast our crowns before thee, 
lost in wonder, love and praise.

changed from glory into glory
lost in wonder, love and praise.
