Hymn from the Church of England Hymn Book


By C. Wesley (1707-1788); Music: W.P. Rowlands (1860-1937)

Love Divine, all loves excelling,
joy of heaven, 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 every trembling heart.

Come, Almighty, to deliver,
let us all Thy life receive.
Suddenly return, and never,
never more Thy temple leave.
Thee we would be always blessing,
serve Thee as Thy hosts above,
pray and praise Thee, without ceasing,
glory in Thy perfect love.
 
Finish then Thy new creation,
pure and spotless let us be.
Let us see Thy great salvation,
perfectly restored in Thee,
changed from glory into glory,
till in heaven we take our place,
till we cast our crowns before Thee,
lost in wonder, love and praise!

The Address to the Bridal Couple

Hymn 201


By C.D. af Wirsén (1842-1912); music: W. Åhlén (1894-1982); translation:  Carolyn and Kenneth Jennings

The earth adorned in verdant robe
sends praises upward surging,
while soft winds breathe on fragrant flowers
from winter now emerging.
The sun shines bright,
gives warmth and light
to budding blossoms tender,
proclaiming summer´s splendour.

From out the wood the birds now sing,
and each its song now raises,
to join with all the Universe
in voicing thankful praises.
With hope and joy
their songs employ
a rapturous exultation
in praise of God´s creation.

O God, amid these joys of life
Creation´s glory beaming,
grant us the grace to keep Your word
and live in love redeeming.
All flesh is grass,
the flowers fade,
and time is fleeting ever;
God´s word remains forever..
