"But the greatest of these is
love" - 1Cor.13:13
1. HAPPY the heart where graces reign
Where love inspires the breast
Love is the brightest of the train
And perfect all the rest.
2. Cherubim in heaven above
And Sacred Scraphim
Around the Holy throne surround
Offering praises to God.
3. Knowledge alas! tis all in vain
And all in vain our fear
Our stubborn sins will fight and reign
If love be absent there.
4. Tis love that makes our cheerful feet
In swift obedience move
The devil knew, and tremble too
But Satan cannot love.
5. This is the grace that lives and sings
When faith and hope shall cease
Tis this shall strike our joyful strings
In the sweet realm of bliss.
6. Before we quite forsake our clay
Or leave this dark abode
The wings of love bear us away
To see our gracious God.
7. Jehovah Nissi our Father
Claim us Thine all to be
Holy Spirit the sacred dove
Lead us, pathway of life.
8. Jehovah Ruphy our Father
Strengthen our feeble frames
May we in accord the Lord praise
As though the Saints above. Amen
