Christian Worship Love To God.
Happy the heart where graces reign,
Where love inspires the breast:
Love is the brightest of the train,
And strengthens all the rest.
Knowledge-alas! ’tis all in vain,
And all in vain our fear;
Our stubborn sins will fight and reign,
If love be absent there.
This is the grace that lives and sings,
When faith and hope shall cease;
‘Tis this shall strike our joyful strings
In realms of endless peace.
Before we quite forsake our clay,
Or leave this dark abode,
The wings of love bear us away
To see our gracious God.
