O Glorious Lord! What Thoughts Thy Mind Did Fill

by H. F. Nunnerley (1873-1953)


Set: Canterbury 2011 Stage
Tune: Speranza 10.10.10.10


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.

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