X. Of our Heavenly Father, 189. T. 22,

T. 22. Our

heav'nly Father is not known' THOU hast the world so greatly loved, To us, but in the Son alone;

Father, that thou by mercy mov'd
His mercy, love, and boundless grace Didst give thy well-beloved Son,
We see display'd in Jesus' face. By death for all our sins t'atone,
20 God! how dreadful was thy name, 2 That he all who in him believe,
Until the God-man Jesus came!

Might in thy family receive;
We cannot love nor honor thee, His sacrifice so great, so dear,
Unless the Son hath made us free. Thou all-sufficient didst declare.
3.0 love, no human tongue can tell! 3 As children we are own’d by thee,
O love divine, unsearchable !

Since Christ.our Brother deign'd to be;
The Father gave his only Son

We feel thy kind, paternal heart For guilty sinners to atone.

To us who have in him a part.
4 Can
ill distress my heart,

4 The whole salvation of thy Son,
Since God with his own Son did part? And all his merits make our own;
Whate'er I want can't be deny'd,
Since Christ for me was crucify'd.

Yea, grant us richly, for his sake,
Of heav'nly blessings to partake.

5 Thou art our Father and our God,
T. 14.

Since Christassum'd our flesh and blood;
BEHOLD what love the Father hath Therefore in thee our trust we place,
On guilty men bestow'd,

And give thee never-ceasing praise.
That we who children are of wrath,
Should children be of God!

192. T. 341. 2 O how beyond expression great

THEE, O my God and King,
His love in Christ doth shine! My Father, thee I sing,
Tis like himself-th' eternal God! Hear well-pleas'd the joyous sound,
Past knowledge! all divine !

Praise from earth and heav'n receive: 3 Behold! for fallen, guilty man,

Lost, I now in Christ am found,
The Lord of glory dies ;

Dead, by faith in Christ I live,
Lays down his life, us to redeem, 2 Father, behold thy son,
A precious sacrifice!

In Christ I am thine own.. 4 Now doth our Lord, the Son of God, Stranger long to thee and rest, Who for us liv'd and dy'd,

See the prodigal is come : See of the travail of his soul,

Open wide thy arms and breast, And is well satisfy'd,

Take the


wand'rer home. 5 Peace and good-will are now to man

3. Thine


observ'd from far, Most gloriously display'd,

Thy pity view'd me near : And life eternal we obtain

Me thy bowels yearn'd to see, From God, in Christ our Head. Me thy mercy ran to find, 6 O let us then repeat the theme,

Empty, poor, and void of thee,
Which always sounds above;

Hungry, sick, and faint, and blind.
And ever sing, with joyful hearts, 4 Thou on my neck didst fall,
The wonders of his love!

Thy kiss forgave me all:
