Sunday Hymn

Father, 'twas Thy love that knew us
Earth's foundation long before:
That same love to Jesus drew us
By its sweet constraining power,

And will keep us,
Safely now, and evermore.

Now that changeless love enfolds us,
All its wealth on us bestows;

While its power unchanging holds us

In a holy calm repose.
God and Father,
Unto Thee our worship flows.

God of love, our souls adore Thee!

We would still Thy grace proclaim,

Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
And in glory praise Thy name;

Praise and worship.
Be to God and to the Lamb! 

From The Little Flock hymnbook, 1856
J. G. Deck, written circa 1850, verse 2 by F. A. Darrah, d. 1936
