Love Divine, All Loves Excelling
Charles Wesley, 1747
|Love divine, all loves excelling,|
Joy of heav'n to earth come down;
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling;
All thy faithful mercies crown.
Jesus, Thou art all compassion,
Pure, unbounded love Thou art;
Visit us with Thy salvation;
Enter ev'ry trembling heart.
2. Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit,
|3. Come, Almighty to deliver,|
Let us all Thy grace receive;
Suddenly return, and never,
Nevermore Thy temples leave.
Thee we would be always blessing,
Serve Thee as Thy host above,
Pray, and praise Thee without ceasing,
Glory in Thy perfect love.
4. Finish, then, Thy new creation;
