O Glorious Lord! What Thoughts Thy Mind Did Fill

by H. F. Nunnerley (1873-1953)

Set: Canterbury 2011 Stage
Tune: Speranza

1 O GLORIOUS Lord! what thoughts Thy mind did fill
When from Thy God Thou cam'st to do His will!
How deep, indeed, the joy that filled Thy heart --- 
That myriad sons with Thee should find their part!

2 Thy brethren, Lord, Thine own and one with Thee,
Were in Thy heart when dying on the tree;
Thy church complete and in Thy beauty dressed --- 
The day of God and love divine at rest.

3 O blessed Lord, what treasured thoughts unfold
In light divine, as we Thy face behold!
Now on our view unbounded glories break,
That speak Thy fame and songs eternal wake.

Mackie said ...
A well-sung hymn. Beautiful!
A very touching hymn to a believer.
